Štábní a velitelské vozy R-U automobilního oddílu

Dear friends of smoke trucks. I would be very interested in any more information about the car in the attached photo. Brand, manufacturer, techn. parameters, etc. Thank you for your help.

Also usable references or professional literature, or relevant historical data on the first automobile unit (Autokader), connected cars. section (Automobilabteilung) and later war Kraftfahrtruppe and Autotruppe. Any information about the emerging Autogruppenkommandos would also be interesting.

Hi, I don't know if I'm carrying pliers into the woods, but I'd like this from 1918:

Thank you for your help and I am adding an interesting period image of a car photographed with the crew in the courtyard of the LIR30 barracks in Vysoké Mýto. This is an undated film from the wartime period, both flags, Austrian and Czech, are worth noting. Sitting officers are from LUR2 hulans. Again, I would be mainly interested in the type of car. Somehow I can't find out.

So now we know that it is probably a Fiat Tipo Zero 1912 (Pininfarina), from the manufacturer Fiat S. A., Turin. They confirmed it to me from the research room Nár. tech. museum in Prague. The second car of the centurion Bišický is one of the types from the company Gräf & Stift, Automobilfabrik AG., Vienna. It is most likely a 40/45 HP 1913 model. The same car was used by Charles I during his inspection trips. Before the war, the Laurin-Klement PULLMAN type M 1913 was also very popular in the use of the R-U army. Unfortunately, due to the price, it was used only to a limited extent. The Fiat came out the best, manufactured for the army in several later modifications and specifications (lugs, car accessories, etc.). Patriotically, on the other hand, Gräf & Stift was clearly used in the Austrian lands.
