The V 180 class was the first long-distance diesel locomotive developed and built in the GDR. Over time, many sub-classes were produced through various conversions. Amongst these was a 6-axle version which was powered with 2,000 HP from the start and was designated as class 118.2-4.
When 1,200 HP engines became available, the C’C’ engines were gradually retrofitted accordingly. Not all of the locomotives were converted, however, and therefore the 2,400 HP engines were given an ordinal number increased by 400 to distinguish them, thus creating the 118.6-8 class.
One particular feature of the six-axle version is the low axle load of 15.6 t, meaning that this locomotive could also be used for general-purpose service on branch lines.
