Mercedes L 1500 Officers Cabriolet, coachwork by Edrmann & Rossi.
1942, two built. Info from, in this case, Kraftfahrzeuge und Panzer der Reichswehr, Wehrmacht und Bundeswehr by Werner Oswald although I have seen the photo elsewhere.

It's Germany and they are Raketenpanzerbuchse 54 (the earlier Raketenpanzerbucshe had no shield and the later Raketenpanzerbucshe 54/1 was shorter and had a smaller shield).

Hi Phil:
You have the type of weapon right, but not the actual designation and country of origin.

Made in Hungary. Slightly smaller than the German version. Don't know the model designation, though.

Leo is correct on country of origin. Lets give it a few hours to see if anyone gets the type designation. If not, Leo is next.

OK, lets keep it going.
It is a 44M Raketaveto 60mm version of a panzerfaust from Hungary. Date of production is 1944 and it was made in several hundred examples. I hope the source link works.

Ooops - sorry. Thought I had missed this one as I did not know the nomenclature.

Anyway. Here's an interesting truck in Hungarian service, ca. 1943.

Have fun
Leo

Hi Leo:
Your truck is a 1939 Ford with some sort of Holzgaz apparat that I have not been able to ID yet.
Edit: Here are two more shots of similar Fords from the Makette magazine of Hungary.
