MAN Type F 4 / F 5






The MAN type F 4 was the largest MAN lorry of its time. Altogether 1,325 vehicles were manufactured from 1936 to 1940. Actually, it had a payload of 8 tons, but legal restrains in the German Reich caused a limitation to 6.5 tons. The MAN type F 4 was propelled by a 150 HP MAN D 3555 diesel engine.

The angular bumper is clearly visible from this perspective. The vehicle belonged to Kraftwagen Transport Abteilung z.b.V. 979. In 1939, this type was renamed to MAN F 5 without outwardly visible changes. From this time on the slightly modified MAN D 3555G engine was used.









MAN type F 4 as tipper lorry were rarely used by the Wehrmacht. Interestingly, the illustrated vehicle belonged to a bakery company.
