Not a Truck. It is mounted on an Sd. Kfz 7/2 half track.

@Anonymous : You are correct, it is not a truck but a Zugkraftwagen of the common (numerous) Sd Kfz 7 type. One trivial point I would like to make though the Sd Kfz 7/1 had four 2cm barrels (hence : 'vierling'). The 7/2 version had one 3.7cm Fliegerabwehrkanone. The chap on the left looks young doesn't he?
