AS I passed on to Nuyt via email, I believe this is an American Mack of the late 1930's most likely an E series but substantially upgraded as regards wheels and tyres.

Mack was active in this country since many years and had a large presence in the civilian truck market as well as some presence in the military truck field as I understand it.

Thanks Bill!
Could this be a vehicle built as a tractor? I'can only find pics of these Macks as civilian tractors...

I'd posted a question on this truck in the modern defence forum.
Bill, thanks a million.

Out of the closet comes the world famous Sitzkrieg to identify himself.

All kidding aside, I am pretty sure on the make and the series of the vehicle but I have not seen one with that wheel/tyre equipment and it may be unique to a small series of specialized trucks.

My calender has been very full of late with two regional meetings with my franchise company almost back to back and one more to go from May 6-10 so I will be a little out of the loop but I will try to investigate this truck further as soon as I can.
