Hello again,
I was set to reply to ilfil's last post, but uncle beat me to it. Just to outline my thoughts, if it was a very small production run it is not feasible for such major changes to take place. The whole cab and the wheels are different on George's photo, compared to the two I posted and the one ilfil kindly added, so it does point towards George's being something else. It is very difficult, I know, to find good source material for French vehicle's from the turbulent days of 1940 with war looming in Europe and the two types are of a very similar appearance at first sight. As I said, I had no idea what the real tanker was, I was just sure that it was not an S 45 TL.
Thank you George, sturm, ilfil and uncle for enabling this interesting and informative discourse, it is what this forum does best.
With best regards,
Kerry.

Not much to be seen, but a rare Laffly S45T?

Hi stürm and ilfil,
I am not sure that this is a Laffly S45TL. The available sources suggest that either a single prototype or, at best, a very limited number of production models were produced. I have, to date, only been able to source two photos of what is likely to be an S45TL and both are very different to the photo George posted. Note the wheels, front wings, rear wheel arches, radiator shape, bonnet line, windscreen form and rake, stowage lockers and the general cab form amongst other differences. It is entirely possible that there were models produced as in George's photo, but I do not believe that the vehicle depicted is a Laffly S45TL. Sadly, as to what it really is, I am at a loss. The cab is of a Czech style, but all else screams French. There is nothing similar in Vauvilliers excellent tome, which, whilst it may contain slight inaccuracies, is considered the "Bible" of WW2 French military transport.
Here are the two photos I mentioned for comparison,
Cheers,
Kerry.
