ZIS-5 / ZIS-5V






The ZIS-5 was up to the strains of the east front, better than many more modern German lorries. It was propelled by a 76 HP petrol engine. Typical for the ZIS-5 was for example the asymmetric attached brace in the windshield. At the beginning of war against the Soviet Union, the Red Army had 104,200 exemplars of this type. Further 83,000 exemplars of the ZIS-5V which had simplified fenders and wooden doors were manufactured during war.









This ZIS-5 was used by a maintenance unit. It was slipped off the road on icy ground and was refloated by a half track vehicle. Note the Balkenkreuz (national identification cross) on the dropside of the ZIS-5.









The type of the bus superstructure on this ZIS-5 could not be identified so far. Possibly it is a kind of staff bus.
