This is an ELW 2, which translates as a command vehicle, staffed by a mid ranking officer and a driver/aide.

A bit on the small side for this job, this Benz 4X4 is however one of the few vehicles that can more or less keep up with a Unimog across country.

Some fire companies jump-man them along with their VW T5 or MB Sprinter ELWSs just for responses to brush fires and the like...You can't lead if you can't show up!
