German Army and NATO Unimog Military Truck

Unimog: from the German name Universal-Motor-Gerät (Universal Motor Implement). The first UNIMOGs were delivered in 1949. In 1950 production was taken over by Daimler-Benz, just released from post-WW II Allied restrictions on truck production. Starting in the late 1970s, pecialized versions of the Unimog Model 406 were sold to the US military for combat engineering functions.
