Mercedes G3A Funkmastwagen Kfz 68, Hoppe



The Funkmastkraftwagen - radio mast motor vehicle - (Kfz. 68), abbreviated Fu. Mastkw. (Kfz. 68), mit Fahrgestell des l. gl. Lkw. (o) - with chassis of the light cross-country lorry (commercial) could be proven on the chassis of the Büssing-NAG G 31, the Magirus M 206 and the Mercedes- Benz G 3 a (see photo above) by photographic evidence.









In this photo, one can see a Fu. Mastkw. (Kfz. 68) based on the chassis of the Magirus M 206 while the radio mast was erected.

The Fu. Mastkw. (Kfz. 68) mit Einheitsfahrgestell für l. Lkw. - with standard chassis for light lorry - replaced the older constructions beginning in 1937. The superstructure was similar but closed on all sides.









Because serial production of the Einheitsfahrgestells für l. Lkw. was stopped in 1940, another sulution had to be found. Therefore, the Fu. Mastkw. (Kfz. 68) was made based on the  m. gl. Lkw. (o) - medium cross-country lorry (commercial) - Opel Blitz 3,6-6700 A with the Einheitskoffer - standard box body - of the Heer, not to be confused with the LC-Koffer of the Luftwaffe.
