The locomotive series V 180 of the Deutsche Reichsbahn was the largest diesel series ever built in the GDR.

It was initially built as a four-axle version with two 2-axle bogies; later there were 6-axle variants. The six-axle version with a low axle load of 15.6t is, even today, still considered to be a masterpiece, by those engineers involved. The low axle load allows for an universal use, so the locomotive can also operate on branchlines. In addition to that, it also has the license to haul trains over steep railway sections. The resulting potential application area is unique for such a large German diesel locomotive.

The V 180 replaced various steam locomotive series in the performance classes above the V100 and therefore accelerated the traction change at the German Reichsbahn. In 1995 the last locomotives of these types stopped operating for the DB AG. Afterwards numerous locomotives were sold to private railway companies.
