The Einheitsdiesel (Uniform Diesel), as the vehicle was generally called, was bult from 1937 to 1940 by MAN (ca.1800), Henschell (ca.1500), Magirus (ca.2500), Büssing-NAG (ca.3200), Faun (ca.700), Daimler-Bnez (ca.550) and probably Vomag. The vehicle was technically advanced, robust and reliable. Because of its complex running-gear design(six-wheel drive and individual suspension of all wheels), the Uniform Diesel had remarkable off-road capability and was thus very popular among the troops. One disadvantage was the low limit of 2375 Kgs, compared to the net weight of 4925 Kgs. Production was halted in 1940, as less expension two-axle trucks with comparable performance figures existed by then. It was widely used by Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe on almost all theatres of war a standart truck, radio van, telephone exchange van, field kitchen, service van and lot of other versions.
