The German designation 16/28 means that it has a 1600 LPM rated pump at 10AT and a 2800 liter tank. Most TLFs of this vintage were either 16/24 with a six-member crew cab or 24/50 with a two or three person cab. This unit with a standard truck cab and a 2800 liter tank was a bit of a rarity, although there were several smaller TLF 8/18s built for use in rural and small town departments.

At this time, the DIN norms called for either an 800, 1600 or 2400 LPM pump, including an 800 LPM portable unit on some pumpers (TSF). In practice, actual pump performance was very often way above the DIN standard, depending on the manufacturer.

Very few German brigades used many 2400 LPM pumps, because the 1600 LPM pumps of that era were deemed powerful enough for most purposes. Typically, their actual output was around 2000 LPM at 10AT and 3000 LPM at 7AT - and much higher if operating from a hydrant, which most of them did most of the time.

Tanks were 800, 2400 or 5000 liters, and the trucks with portable pumps had no water tanks. Crews were 9, 6 or 2, depending on the appliance's specification or application, with nine on a regular pumper (LF8/8 or LF16/8) six on a pump water tender (TLF 16/24), and two on a tanker (TLF8/18 or TLF24/50) a TL (DL) or a rescue truck (GW).
