This Lanz Ackerluft-Bulldog was an early variant of the type HR8 D9506 with a 38 HP engine. The vehicle was pneumatic-tyred and so could be used on good roads, too.

Quite frequently used by units of the Luftwaffe was the Lanz type HR8 D9538 Eil-Bulldog. It was used for different towing tasks in military bases and on frontline airstrips. Sometimes, such vehicles were used for moving A.A. guns.









The only difference between the Lanz type HR8 D9539 Eil-Bulldog and the type D 9538 was the totally closed driver’s cab. An additional warm-air heating was available for such driver’s cabs. This was more comfortable for service during winter. (Photo: German federal archive via Wikimedia Commons; License: Creative Commons BY-SA-3.0-gb)
