The Berliet VSFD has a different arrangement of the bumper, tow hooks, and doors.
Thanks a lot, apollo111.... so, I guess that the Berliet truck of my last image is a VSFN2...

Hi all,
A friend asked me to ID a truck but I'm afraid I'm helpless.
Here are screenshots from a documentary on the big Royal manoeuvres of Bulgarian army in 1937, this is the final parade:

And the single picture known:

The trucks were used to transport Ansaldo tankettes and were delivered with them in the same batch. So apparently the trucks are Italian.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
(N.B. It is possible the cabs and bodies are domestic)
Cheers!

Hi Alif,
It's a 326. The 335 had different headlamp placement and bonnet louvers as well as a different bumper which is hidden in your photo.

Is this a Buick/Chevrolet ? Can anyone decipher the text on the Backsite?
What unit indicates the "V" sign?

Hi Corjan,
Unfortunately I don't read German but to be honest I don't think I could decipher that hand writing even if it were in English, but what I do think is that the car is a right hand drive FIAT 1500.

Max thank you for the identification. I believe you are right. The handwriting is often seen on this kind of photos. Seems the normal writing of the 29/30ties!

The vehicle on the first photo behind the Bianchi S9 is the same Latil as on these photos. Emblem could also be of the Kraftwagen Transport Regiment 4 (Speer) Luftwaffe. Who knows more?

Hi Corjan,

to Your question: can anyone decipher the text on the Backsite?
"bei unserm ehem. Winterquartier" - "at our former winter quarters".

Best regards
