From the manufacturer's website:

From the start of the rearmament of the German Army in the early 1930s, the benefits of motorized vehicles were realized and all efforts were made to provide the proper vehicles for the 'Blitzkrieg' style. In the middle of the thirties Mercedes-Benz company developed the LG 3000 off-road three-axle ( 6x4 ) truck. There was the continuation of the Mercedes G 3 model from 1928. Instead of their competitors with gazoline engines, the type LG 3000 was equipped with a Diesel engine. The truck was delivered mainly to the Luftwaffe and the Engineers troops. Its battle career started in the Spanish Civil War. Service continued throughout World War II. Many types of bodies were bulit.

In the Wehrmacht this Krupp vehicle was used as a radio truck, fuel tank truck (3500 L capacity), photography truck, mobile meteorological station, airport searchlight truck, etc. They served on all fronts from Russia to North Africa. Production ended in 1938. Because the truck served throughout WWII, they had all variants of German camouflages. The pre-World War II Germany camouflage schema used RAL 7021 dark gray as a base color with camouflage patches of RAL 7017 brown. In Europe there was Panzer Grau (RAL 6006), while in Africa there was Sand. Panzer Grau was replacedby Dunkelgelb (RAL 7058) with green or brown mottles. Cars were overpainted by whitewash in winter conditions.
