Great picture, the classic line up of period German appliances.

Schlagkräftiger Fuhrpark! ;) I guess it must have already been a part of Berliner Feuerwehr then, no longer a People's Police (Volkspolizei) Kommando F?

Left to right: Barkas B1000 (possibly ELW, or command unit), 2x TLF 16 GMK (water tender) IFA W 50 LA, LF 16 (pumper) IFA W 50 L, DL-30 (30-m TL) IFA W 50 L/DL, Tatra T815/CKD crane(I'm guessing it's an ADK 125-2), the last IFA is probaby a special (GW/RTGW, prime mover?). All of the vehicles had been sprayed with a livery that was made obligatory in 1987 (the large white stripe was known as the 'Bauchbinde').

The LF 16(-TS 8) had a 200 l water tank, a 200 l foam concentrate tank (+ usually a reserve of 4 20-litre canisters, ) and a pump that delivered 2.200 lpm.

The TLF 16 GMK was introduced in 1984 and it was the GDR's first fire appliance which had a superstructure built without any wooden or plastic elements - hence the additional acronym 'GMK'(Ganzmetallkoffer) to distinguish it from its predecessor, whose body had a wooden frame. It carried 2.200 l of water 500 l of foam concentrate and a pump with an output of 2.200 lpm.
