Beginning in the late 1920s, Coles manufactured a whole series of mobile cranes of the type EMA for the Royal Air Force. The cranes had lifting capacities from two to six tons. This Coles EMA was used by a tank unit of the Wehrmacht.
Captured Coles EMA mobile cranes were useful implements for the Luftwaffe and other units. These cranes had electric drive so that the trailer could be moved in the working area under its own power. (Photo: German federal archive via Wikimedia Commons; License: Creative Commons BY-SA-3.0-gb)
