For the VHF-radio services of the Bundeswehr. The small roll in front of the roof is the extra heating. For starting it, you have to climb on the roof, connect a cable, hold a knob and pumping the starter gear. Sometimes it works then.

When I've dome my army-services in 1990/91, we still had this stone-aged technology from the mid-50ies in use! :/ It was incredible embarassing to see in the TV, what technology the US Army had at the same time, during the war in Kuwait. They had the radio-technology in a backpack and hold a laptop for firing the rockets. More technology in one US-back-pack than in complete West German truck with three soldiers.
Uh, and there was no electronic stuff inside! Not even electric - it was electro-mechanic. :wow: Our chiffre-scrambler was based on the legendary ENIGMA of the WW II - but bigger and heavier.

Finally I've failed my license for that kind of troops. I was too rebellious and nasty to the officers. I've said that it's a big piss-take to contend, that this cast-iron-scrap shall be actual technology, and that I canot see any sense to learn how to handle it.
