I believe I am correct in saying that it's a CBA (fr). Made from summer 1913 until 1932: 1,000 trucks were made each months in 1918 and 15,000 were delivered during WWI.

While it may be intended to represent such a vehicle, it is doubtful that it is the genuine article.

The use of pneumatic tyres on a vehicle of this size supposedly during the First World War is an error, as is the apparent lack of chain drive. The poorly concealed modern radiator with the word "Berliet" in script painted on the core should confuse no-one, and I would say that electric lighting on an army truck of this era would be unusual. I can also see no sign of the steering track rod in front of the front axle. Maybe it's a later CBA dressed up to look like an earlier one.

I also noticed the use of anachronistic tires (when comparing to WWI pictures) and the fact that it has a drive shaft instead of a chain. This said, the CBA was produced during 20 years, so, as you said, it could be a later model.
Maybe someone familiar with these trucks will help us to know more some day?
