Hi Sturm78
the second picture shows a demolition vehicle Borgward BII and the first picture is its
amphibious variant BIII Ente.

Hi Armin & Sturm,
Thanks for the pics. I am familiar with the Sd. Kfz. 300 B-I & B-II, and the Sd.kfz.301 B-IV but notice the B-III Ente was never classified with an Sd. Kfz. number. Was it ever in serial production or just a prototype?
Cheers,
Max

Hi Max
according to Jaugitz Waffen-Arsenal Special Band 10 there were 3 Ente
tested by 2./ Minenräumabt. 1 in springtime of 1941 in the river Rhine
and later used in July 41 when crossing the Duna river.

Thanks a lot for your help, Armin

Hi Sturm and Andriy,
Andriy beat me to it while I was looking for a version with this type of cab. It is an ES with cab as shown here top right. Is it an impressed civilian version perhaps?

Thanks a lot for your answers, Andriy. It is difficult to differnciate between the differnet models of BN Burglöwe.....

Here another image from Ebay. I have many doubts with this halftrack. First, I thought in a SdKfz 7 halftrack but a closer look in the engine radiator convinced me that this is a SdKfz 8 halftrack. But I am not sure if this vehicle is a rare DB s8 or the later DB 9.... :?

The running gear is 12tonner instantly by the shape of the "droplet" wheels. The radiator has a vaguely visable mercedes star, so both s8 and s9 are possible, the s10 has different frontwheels. According to Spielberger, the main visable difference is the distance between the front wheels, and that seems quitte narrow, so s8 it probably is. (The s9 was also produced by krupp)

Hi Sturm 78,

to Your question about a truck:
I think it is a UNIC type Z 50. Here another pic with such a truck, but with a gas generator (source of the pic: www.kfzderwehrmacht.de).

Best regards

Bert

Hi uncle,

an absolutely excellent identification! My compliment! I think it is the type "T 20". Here a drawing of this tractor (source of the pic: https://archiv-axel-oskar-mathieu.de/pd ... chinen.pdf). It is really great that You could solve a so old question.

Thanks a lot!

Best regards

Bert
