Lorries

History

As part of the Wehrmacht's re-armament program they used commercially available Lorries (Lastkraftwagen) and modified them for military use.

In 1934 it was decided to replace the existing commercially bought vehicles and with a new range of standardised purpose-built vehicles. It was decided that there would be three classes of Lastkraftwagen. And that they should have as many parts. In common as possible, e.g. suspension engines, etc. many manufacturers were involved in the manufacture of Lastkraftwagen, M.A.N, Daimler-Benz, Faun, Hansa-Lloyed-Goliath, Henschel, Magirus, Vomag, Opel Blitz.
