The Berlin fleet in the 1960s and 1970s was almost all normal control MAN trucks, because they were lower than forward control trucks available at the time. The next generation were special low profile Mercedes, which were also the first combination pump and rescue trucks introduced in to Germany.

Hi Rob & Jacques Peter!This is how a engine painted in Day Glow Red, looks after been out in the sun, and has been beaten by other eliments, like rain! They was normally repainted ih red, ´cos it cost a lot of money to paint them Day Glow Red!
