That is NKL-16 Model 1941, as well as in photos 147468...70 (...and before you ask your question nr 287995: the one in SA-photo 147467 is NKL-26).

I have a question regarding Finnish trucks during the Continuation War.
Were the captured soviet trucks (GAZ-AA by exemple) pressed into Finnish service painted in a particular color when changing ownership ?
Did they retain the original soviet color ?
Was there multiple options of painting or camoflage ?

Hi Sturm,
It's an International Harvester TD Series, a Model TD-6 I think:

Hello all,
I found this thread while researching for a model I am building.
I am building a Gaz-42, a Gaz-AA with woodgasifier.

Now my question would be: how great are the chances of the Finnish using a russian Gaz truck.
And if possible what would the Finnish markings be.

Thank you very much.

Dennis.

The Ford assembly shop in Helsinki overhauled 1400 war booty GAZ 42 trucks. Some sources say it was a misspent effort and there seems to be very little photos of them.
