Hi folks,

does anyone of you know which German WWII vehicles are hidden under abbreviations: DBL-5, DBL-8, Vomag ZCK or HKL-6/40 please?

Many thanks in advance and Merry Christmas!

Hi! Tomas,

I've had a quick search through the big "German Sdkfz and Kfz meanings" .PDF file (16 pages, BTW) that I picked up somewhere on the internets.

Nothing, nada, zip, zilch, to report I'm afraid.

Since you've quoted your email address I'll send you a copy, in any case.

Cheers,
Paul.


N.B. email address is a re-director to my real one. It's never used to send by me.

The DB l 5 and DB l 8 were designations for versions of the mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 5-ton Sd.Kfz.6.

The designations translate as Diamler-Benz, leichter, 5th and 8th version, respectively.

The HL kl 6, or Hansa-Loyd, small, 6th version, is the designation of the mild steel (un-armored) pre-production Sd.Kfz.251, which was in fact based on the leichter Zugkraftwagen 3-ton Sd.Kfz.11.

This info is on the first couple of pages in Panzer Tracts 22-2 and 22-3.

The other one I have no clue about.
