Not strictly a vehicle, but it has wheels!

Somebody on Flickr think this could be an Henschel 33... Maybe it's not such a crazy idea.

Only problem is that a Henschel 33 has a double rear axle Smile

Damn, Walter beat me to it.
But I'll add the distinctive spoked wheels, the embossed star, tall filler cap and the line of six bolts on the upper and the five on the lower side of the radiator as identifying features of the Henschel.

This is an interesting one, while its soviet heritage is clear, it's something unique to Bulgaria:

Another mystery:

Hi Massimo
I had this same picture from a few years back labeled as Mercedes 3000,I don't know why.
So I contacted a Dutch friend who is a real authority on Mercedes.
H said it is indeed a Mercedes from the L3000 group
The wooden cabine is probably not quite original.And without having a look at the engine it cannot be say for sure wich version it is. It could be a 3000 or a 2750 or 2600 or 2500.
These all look the same and only difference is the engine and the loading capaticity.
Hopes this help.

Walter

That is quite the lowboy. Looks like it would be no fun to work that gun.

It would appear to be a variation of the Armstrong RBL (Rifled Breech Loading) 12-pdr 8cwt type, although I cannot be entirely sure. Like many guns of its vintage, it lacks a recoil system.
