Hi again,

my heirs won’t have much fun with my estate, as it is rather higgledy-piggledy. So it happened that I found some additional pictures of former Austrian Army Jeeps after I have published the relevant galleries. But anyway, I am afraid my heirs won’t care at all and toss out all my stuff the sooner the better…

"Austrian Armed Forces", "Austrian Army", BH, Bundesheer, "Ford Jeep", "General Purpose", Jeep, "Jeep 10,6cm M40A1", "Jeep 5,7cm rPAK M18", "Jeep mit 10,6cm rPAK M40A1", "Jeep mit 10,6cm rPAK M40A1 auJeepObwohl mit amerikanischen Markierungen versehen, lassen sich ein paar Modifikationen des Bundesheeres erkennen.

Although marked as U.S. vehicles some Austrian Army modifications are recognizeable.

Austrian Military Museum/Sammlung Gill, Juni 1998

I added new Galleries of two M4 High Speed tractors

The markings resemble a vehicle of the former artillery school.

Daher wurde er mit einem taktischen Zeichen der Heereskraftfahrschule/HKS versehen, so wie es auch auf einem Foto aus dem Erprobungsbetrieb dokumentiert ist.

The original unit of the Berliet could not elicited anymore. Thus it has been marked as a vehicle belonging to the Army force driving school. Such an assignment is documented on a picture.

 

All the best, Werner
