ZIS-5 / ZIS-5V

 

 

SIS_5_bekommt_Kofferaufbau

 

 

The ZIS-5 was up to the strains of the east front, better than many more modern German lorries. It was propelled by a 76 HP petrol engine. Typical for the ZIS-5 was for example the asymmetric attached brace in the windshield. At the beginning of war against the Soviet Union, the Red Army had 104,200 exemplars of this type. Further 83,000 exemplars of the ZIS-5V which had simplified fenders and wooden doors were manufactured during war.

 

 

 

 

 

SIS-5_Balkenkreuz

 

 

This ZIS-5 was used by a maintenance unit. It was slipped off the road on icy ground and was refloated by a half track vehicle. Note the Balkenkreuz (national identification cross) on the dropside of the ZIS-5.

 

 

 

 

 

ZIS_5_Busaufbau_&_Henschel_Typ_33

 

 

The type of the bus superstructure on this ZIS-5 could not be identified so far. Possibly it is a kind of staff bus.
