IFA was a well known conglomerate in the then east Germany and owned several brands such as Barkas, EMW, IWL, MZ, Multicar, Robur, Sachsenring and Simson and produced from bicycles, motorcycles to cars and heavy-duty automobiles. They also happened to own the factory that made this Horch truck model after division of Germany.
Originally a Vomag truck it was re-christened Horch 6 or H6 (H for Horch and 6 was the payload capacity I.e. 6 tons). It also had a nickname “Langjauber” which meant the truck with a snout because of the projecting nose. This was a medium duty truck and was introduced in the Auto Show at Leipzig in 1951. This model truck was seen almost everywhere in communist Germany. A bus variant was also produced to carry people in the industrial cities.
