No, the LPS is the biggest version of this range. To identify by the headlights in the bumper.
@rjluna2: the oval headlights of the big LPS-series are identical with the Ford 17 M[P3], the NSU 1000 and some other vehicles.

LPS?
I don't know if I'm right, but I believe the letters are as follows:
L = Lastkraftfahrzug, German for Truck or Heavy Goods Vehicle.
P = Pullman kabine, meaning a bigger cabin compare with the small ones built in the 50's and earlier.
S = Sattelzugmachine, German for Tandem rear axle, or two rear axles. Possible another later mening would be "Schwer" = German for Heavy.
A = Allrad, German for Four wheel drive.
K = I'm not sure, but possible Truck with hood or bonnet, or perhaps specially equipped for certain markets.

L? Certainly.
P? Sure.
S? Perhaps, but most likely not.

LPS 1113 but heavy trailer LPS 1115 1117 1119 more plausible
midrange as ingo explained LPS as zodiac explained
Link to "www.lkw-infos.eu"
curiosum: midrange can be heavy even 1619 same as today with Actros and Axor or Atego
Link to "www.lkw-infos.eu"
but ours has wheels of 111X

I stand corrected!

When looking for something else, I found a Mercedes truck model range called "Lkv-Typenübersicht", printed in January 1968.
It states that all trailer towing models are called "S" as their last letter, which as a second thought is correct as "Sattelzug" naturally means "saddle train" where the saddle is the place where the trailer is 'hinged'.

(I'm sorry for this mistake, I should have known as I have studied the German language for a while. But on the other hand; a friend of mine studied to became a Chemist and stated that a fully trained such is someone that has forgotten more Chemistry than most other people will ever learn...)

Consequently the above truck is a LPS. But which one is much more complicated, in 1968 there was a choice between a number of models: 608, 911, 1013, 1313, 1317, 1513, 1517, 1418, 1623, 1920 and 1923, but for twin rear axles (also called LPS) only 2023 (6x2) and 2223 (6x4).

It's not necessary to put "kubischer Frontlenker" as extra info. Or else we'd have to put "jellybean-shaped conventional truck" to every International ProStar in the db, for instance.
