Peugeot DK 5 J






The Peugeot DK 5 J 1.2 -1.4 tons lorry was based on the Peugeot 402 passenger car. It was used in large quantities by the French army and the Wehrmacht. Approximately 12,500 units were manufactured for the Wehrmacht.









This Peugeot DK 5 J belonged to Nachrichten Bataillon 101 of 101. Jäger-Division. Because of the missing cross-country mobility, such vehicles were not suitable for the use in Russia.
