Not sure if it has been mentioned here, but if you ever go to Tampa, FL, visit the Tampa bay Automobile Museum. They have a French halftrack and a Kubelwagon.

Hi Sturm 78,

I think You are right that it is the type W 15 T. But it is a difficult question, which of three companies produced this vehicle on Your pic.
Until June 1940, Laffly produced 72 pieces, Hotchkiss 78 pieces and Citroen 29 pieces of this type. There were only different logotypes on the top of the radiator. It could be a Hotchkiss, but I´m not sure. Here a pic of a Hotchkiss W 15 T for comparing.
(source of the information and of the logotypes: "Tous les Laffly Militaires 1914 - 1940" by Francoise Vauvillier. Source of the pic: ebay).

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert, Sturm,
I also think it looks like a Hotchkiss. But there was also a version built by Licorne under licence by Laffly, not sure how many:

Hi Max,

thank You for Your reply. You are right, that there was also a version built by Licorne under licence by Laffly, but it was the type V 15 T. La Licorne built 165 pieces of this type.

Best regards

Bert

Thanks, Bert. I didn't have a photo showing the rear wheels of this particular vehicle. I'll change the caption.
Cheers,
Max

Hi Sturm,
Good question. Maybe a militarized AGP 3 tonnes?

Hi Sturm 78, hi Max,

a very good ID! I think I can confirm the ID of Max. Here another pic of a Renault type AGP with the front windscreen from 1937.
