The 23/12 has an articulated top ladder section, so that it can reach a vertical height of 23 meters with a horizontal reach of 12 meters. The top section can also extend downwards to the reverse side of a pitched roof, or for a water rescue.

This gives it some of the versatility of an ALP, on a less bulky and less expensive appliance.

These are the most common aerials in Berlin, and are very popular all over Germany - as well as in other European countries including the UK (for now).

This example has a low profile cab, which is also a feature of quite a large number of Berlin's 35 aerial trucks. All of them are MAN, as are their pumpers and most of their special purpose units.
