Thank you very much for your answers, Sean and Holger. :D

As for the BMW cars, I'm not sure. :? I looked the photos on your page, Holger (before to ask in the forum always look first in your page :lol: :wink: ), but I think the ventilation openings of BMW 319 Kubelwagen are not exactly equal to those of the vehicles of my photos (more rounded in your photos).

Apart from this question, I have two other photos to identify correctly. In this case, trucks:

Image 1: Probably a Hansa-Lloyd (Borgward) Luftwaffe truck, but, What model? :?
Image 2: I think MAN D1 truck but I am not sure 100%

Images from Ebay

Hello Sturm78.

I think you misunderstood me. I have linked to the 319 Kübelwagen only because of the similar three-seater Kübelwagen car body. The two BMW Kübelwagen you have posted are 309, as I said.

The Luftwaffe lorry is a Hansa Lloyd, for sure. Note the brand label on frame of the radiator. Typical for Hansa Lloyd, the type is not documented without doubt. Because of the long platform, I think it is not a 3ton model. The side plates of the engine bonnet looks more like a Europa III or Merkur.

The MAN lorry is indeed a D 1.

Regards, Holger.

Hello all.

An old mystery is solved:

A longer time ago, Bert asked about this lorry. We diskusse it but didn't came to a satisfying solution. Now I'm sure:

It is a Mercedes-Benz LG 2500 (LG 65/3), 6x6, 80 HP diesel engine. 150 vehicles were made for the Greec army.

It is a bit similar to the Einheitsdiesel. So I think it was initially developed as competing model by Daimler-Benz.

A photo can be found in Oswalds Mercedes Benz Lastwagen und Omnibusse on side 229. (I have the 2008 version, don't know if it is also in the older book).

Regards, Holger.

It is indeed a Mercedes-Benz LG65/3, this type was built in 1934, the Einheitsdiesel was built later in 1937/38-'40.

The technical details of the both trucks are totally different.

Hi all,

According to http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 5&start=15 the Greek Army bought both the MB LG 2500 and the MB LG 4000 trucks, but I have never seen any pictures of these trucks, until now :D

Hi Bill,

Krupp LD4?? Uhmmmm... I am not sure. The wheel rims not seem to match (with the vehicles of Holger webpage http://www.kfzderwehrmacht.de/Homepage_ ... m_232.html) but... :?

They look more like FAUN L 400's.

Regards,

Holger.

(It seems, that the Wehrmacht was a good customer of FAUN. This type with Wehrmacht driver's cab can be seen quite frequent.)

Hello

I found the image on e-bay it shows a 8,8cm Anti tank gun "Scheunentor" with a halftrack.

What kind of halftrack is it and what type of body? 8O It seems for me very rare!

best regards

Henning

Sturm/Holger:

My apologies, a Faun it certainly is by the small badge on the front of the motor hood.
I would have to say, though, that the LD4 Krupp can be found both with Trilex wheels and the ones in your question photo according to Regenberg's Krupp history book..
