Haifischmaul (Shark mouth)

This one is the first version of the LO wich was build by Robur. This LO 1800 gets the nickname
"Haifischmaul" (shark mouth) because of the design of his front. This very simply kind of an fire engine and all the later versions of it becames the most build fire engine in the GDR.

Andreas, another Winner !

That towed Ladder is intriguing - I suppose it would be a Towed Wheeled Escape, in Britain.

Did you see one, being put up (in use) ?

Thankyou again Andreas, these shots are so interesting. We didn't get to see much from the GDR and you are making up for it with these!
