Info about the DAF M39 ???

Post by Sbf.Koch » 02 Sep 2004 19:03

I'd like to have some more info about the Dutch-made DAF M39. I heard it was very advanced for it's time (just like the Fokker G-1)
I'm interested because it was made in my country, and I heard something about only 1 ever fought the germans and the rest went into german Police-service??? Is this right?
Tech specs are also very welcome!

Hello everybody,
Nice picture indeed, but the 2 M38 on the left are not DAF made vehicles, but swedish L161 Landsverk named M38 Pantserwagen in the Dutch Army
Friendly from Belgium

Sorry but that is not a M39....(M39 had a slopped Front....and a slopped rear!)...it's probably a M36 or 38

Nice pictures MaisAlto

The M39 (DAF WH) picture that you posted ,did you found it also on E-bay,if so it's a realy nice find.

Here are some M36 picture,the dutch army had 12 of these vehicles (Both picture are from expired E-bay sales).

The first picture shows a Dutch M36 with a large police emblem somewhere in Russia.
The second one, captured M36 in 1940 they have no markings on them yet.

Regards

I just want to add that the Danish Army also bought two Landsverk 180 vehicles for trials in the mid-1930ies. They disappeared when the Army was dissolved by the Germans in 1943. I guess the most likely destination would have been to the units already using the Dutch vehicles if they had any left by 1943...?

Any way to make a Dutch and a Danish L180 apart?

AFAIK Ireland and Norway also used this vehicle - any other users?
