leichter geländegängiger Lastkraftwagen, offen
mit Einheitsfahrgestell für l. Lkw.






The l. gl. Lkw. was one of the best lorries of the Wehrmacht. The shown vehicle had the multicolour camouflage pattern of the Reichswehr which was common until 1937. The photo was made on 16th October 1938.









The pulling force of the l. gl. Lkw. was specified as 3.5 tons. Therefore, it was occasionally used as towing vehicle for guns. This l. gl. Lkw. is towing a 15cm heavy infantry gun 33.









The l. gl. Lkw. was often used as army kitchen lorry. This one was photographed during a rail transport. Finally, the army kitchen lorry was the most important vehicle for the soldiers.









The production line canvas top of the rear superstructure had the same high as the canvas cover of the driver’s cab. From time to time, photos appear which shows much higher canvas tops of the rear superstructure. Till now, it could not be clarified without doubt, if these higher canvas tops were all modifications made by the troop.
