Busch 95520 Espewe: IFA L60 Etk Egypt
The spare parts case (ETK) was used as a body in addition to the W50 for the L60. Since these vehicles were built on all-wheel drive chassis, they were very off-road and had a large loading volume. In the 1980s, a large proportion of the production output in Ludwigsfelde was used for export in order to earn foreign currency with the vehicles on chassis of the W50 and L60. The vehicles were exported in significant numbers in the military variant to countries such as Egypt, Iran or Iraq. There they were popular due to the low procurement prices and simply stayed behind in combat operations when they were damaged by enemy fire. Vehicles from Ludwigsfelde with bullet holes are therefore not uncommon in photos or reports, for example on the Iraq wars.
