The S4000 as a fire engine was produced from 1959 to 1967 and had a cab with a crew cab for 6 people.In the equipment room, all devices such as the pump and the rapid attack device were integrated, and there were 2 connecting ladders on the accessible roof.The production took place until 1965 in the VEB fire extinguisher plant in Jhstadt, then in the VEB fire extinguisher plant in Luckenwalde.The vehicles from Luckenwalde can be recognized by the smooth design of the cabin, the vehicles from Jhstadt have a bead under the side windows.The model reproduces the version from Luckenwalde.Production ended due to the replacement by the 1969 newly developed W50 LA TLF 16 on four-wheel drive chassis.Decommissioned vehicles also came to regional transport companies, road maintenance departments or agricultural production cooperatives and were used there, for example, as equipment or workshop trolleys. At the National Peoples Army (NVA), the S4000 was used for its own fire brigades, which were used, for example, at military training areas in forest areas or military airports. In addition to the red paint, vehicles were also painted green during the general overhaul.
