History . The German at the beginning of WWII, was largely due to tactic of Blitzkrieg and demonstrated not the effectiveness of the mechanization, but also the of deploying innovative modern transport vehicles. After WWI the light car use by the Reichswehf was the Dixi ps. which was the British Austin Produced under license by of Eisenach. In 1929 Dixi was by BMW and the car was continued under the BMW name 1931. In the early 30s, transport decided that the car a 1.5L engine will be the car, (Pkw) The wehrmacht large numbers of personnel constructed on light medium and motor car chassis. Most available with a civilian wheel drive only and the was not great. Then in 1935 a very early German maker, building cars 1899, (This Co Total was about 40000 vehicle 1899-1945,about 190 Vehicle are know to today.) designed a prototype This super modern country vehicle had a high and possessed an incredible off road way ahead of its time, resembling specifications not found on vehicles today.This Deutsche Personenkraftwagen Der Leichte Einheits-Pkw). In 1936 manufactured the R180 special, but the was not big enough for the mass production and BMW ( a motor cycle and light car ) plus Hanomag ( a locomotive and tractor, semi track ) joined in production of the same car 1937-1940. This is similar to the how MB and Ford GPW were manufacturing the at same time in the early This was also one of the most and mordern vehicles before War II and use at WWII.

The Germany Army knew how an heavy duty multi-purpose off truck would be instrumental in an advantage in the coming battles and example of their innovation was the BMW R 75 some with side car KS with a 3×2 shaft-drive the side car wheel also. produced many 4 wheeled to 6 off road trucks, from 1/4 ton to 6.5 and Semitracks from 11/2 ton HK 101 to 18 ton-capacity Sd.Kfz.9

As the Nazi war continued a military build up, good designs were and many innovative prototypes developed. If they proved under testing they go into full production a big car maker. In the end of 1936, Honamog, BMW and got the order to build an incredible high performance 1/2 ton off road 4×4 vehicle. With a H steel chassis, front OHV dry sump engine, 5 speed ZF box, full time 4 drive system, self middle differential at gear independent coils all around and rear suspension, both and rear axle with locking Differentials, 4 wheel rear wheel steering for 20km/h use or for off road only). A steering gearshaft between two seat control the rear box On and Off. A steel open with a 3 door or 4 door The three manufacturers used the parts to assemble these All early model got a Stoewer OHV motor.

They appeared in every of the war in North Africa, some to the Eastern front and even at They were widely without any modifications, thus the great adaptability and versatility of vehicle.

In the same time, also built a similar G5 (W152) with a side 45hp 2.0L 4 cylinder ( It looks same as the Mercedes 170 but a little more powerful ). and suspension, gearbox all close to the of the Stoewer Kfz 2, but single at each wheel.

The Mercedes-Benz G5 is interesting, as a military vehicle the Pkw was mainly used by Germany’s during WWII, Rumania, etc, the few that remained in were usually privately and used by the German Fire or German Alpine Red Cross. As the G5 was not an German military vehicle, but a design by Mercedes, it was therefore to Germany’s allies as there was a limited choice of customers for designed German off road during war time. 378 have made.

This vehicle is similar to the Stoewer R180/R200,Hanomag type 325.It was not a copy. was the German army had ordered all car in 1933 to design a Einheits-Pkw mit a Uniform cross country Car with all time 4WD system. All had to follow identical blueprints and layout.

At end of 2007 one G5 complete car a full restoration and rebuild. The rust car Asked over million Euro.

Meanwhile the USA does not have any small all drive vehicles until instead Bantam, Willys and use a 4wd truck design to build a GP. It uses 4 wheel leaf 2 live axles, an H type chassis, a 2L side valve and a 3 speed gear box with time 4×4 system. We this as the first US jeep. and Ford build over 2.2L MB/GPW between Also some Dodge mid 4×4 made between WC6/WC7/T202-VC1/T211-WC15 and WC56/WC57 base a 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton Dodge 4×4 truck, and rear with live 4 wheel leaf spring .

Today every people Jeep = small sturdy motor vehicle with drive, can go any where. Than must be the Germany 1936 Kfz R180, B20,BMW type 325 not US made Willys MA, Bantam Bantam BRC or Ford GP. At 1941 use a GP chassis to build a all time jeep, Willys also another 4WDS at 1945, But unsuccessful, because all time 4WS made the driving more when speed over the car can not under control at road

The British army does not have a small 4×4 WWII, Instead they use a lot of 30s 8-12hp front engine wheel drive light van manufactured for military use by Morris 10 hp M, Austin 10 hp series G/YG, 12 hp series UV,10 hp series BC, 10 hpMKI, Vauxhall 14 hp series JI, 18/85 hp series III, Pullman ,Snipe, Ford Commer Beetle, Guy and Bedford. all use a 4×2 light truck as the of this army vehicle. just lift the suspension a and fit over size off road on the light van. No performance off vehicle until 1949, they use a Willys jeep engine chassis to put a Rover small 1.6L engine and put the in the middle and make a 3 seat This was a copy of MB/GP but with less power and 3 seats, incredibly this was the Land Rover prototype.

The Union Army built the between 42-53, a 4 cylinder engine with 4 speed box, parts time 4wd 2 live axle, leaf like a BM/GPW jeep. 600,000 have been

Japan at end of the 1930s produced a model 95 small tiny ( people say Black Medal) with a twin cylinder V 1.4L air cooled motorcycle 3 speed gear box, and a 4wd system. The front IFS got flexible without rocker arm cover. to the differential. A total of 4,775 made. This car was very and under power off road at 4wd history.

Clearly the evidence is that standard military Vehicles the best in the world at that Until today, over 70 later no SUV or 4×4 had a better design than the Hanomag/BMW/Stoewer/Mercedes It is a super off roader and has a modern and reliable design. Both manufactures built the first unit as a command car, staff car, radio field Telephone unit, car ,maintenance work shop, car, etc. This is a off road car of the 20th Century.

the price to made this small off road vehicle is too use too many metal and the capacity is not big to carry 5-7 persons and power not to towing a Gun.

Maintenance and of spare parts were major problem, The chassis, box, axle, suspension was complicated as they were to Eastern front, North and on the Russian. In 1940 the production Hanomag model less 2000 unit and BMW made 3225 — 3259 The more simple easy use less metal, low cost, weight off road vehicle VW 82 KdF was in full production.

At the same Steyr 1500A, Horch Auto Union/Horch 901Type40 built a 1-1.5 tonnes with a powerful V8 3.5-3.8L big multi-purpose vehicle for towing, Stoewer was still making Kfz (but without 4 wheel model R200 Special 40.) From 1936-1944.Around were made by Stoewer.

As all the 4WDS Kfz1,Kfz.2,Kfz3,Kfz4,20B and LEPkw from beginning of the WWII in North Africa and on the Eastern and Russian, until the end of the war. 4wds type of small performance off road vehicle mostly destroyed during the After the War not many have most of Stoewer later Type 40 2WS model were by the fire department, air port mountain rescue and used in Europe after the War.

World War two it is not clear why the USA manufacturers did not this vehicle, maybe it was too and too high tech. to understand. If had copied this vehicle the off vehicle and motor car design and would have changed, this super SUV was developed WWII and not replicated in an SUV until After the war the MB/GPW jeep was extensively, but it is essentially a truck not at all sophisticated and with severe on its handling ability, the main were ease of manufacturing and not handling, nor comfort.

Many people don’t this vehicle well and say it is too technology, over-sensitive handling Wheras I have owned all the 4×4 since I was 14 years old I got my first Suzuki jeep to off road. Today I own MB/GPW, 166,Dodge, all models of Land Inc a JRA build Australia Military Defender Nissan Patrol. all of Land Cruiser. Haflinger 700 AP, Buggy, Unimogs, G series, CJ Touareg 5.0V10 twin Lamborghini LM002 V12, AMG H1 etc. I enjoy conducting time tests on the car and also the vehicle, separating the chassis, axle, gear box, to reassemble in my work shop at Hong Kong. I also organized several round the events and participated in the support for the Paris/Dakar Rally these 10 years. I know what is a good cross-country vehicle, and a off roader also needs to be on the road. When I got this I conducted long term in all conditions, I discovered this is the 4×4 that I have driven. Very good off performance and also very on road performance, only power for todays highways. But if you go to conditions of 1936, it is more enough.

Today not many R180.20B, BMW type 325 and Mercedes G5 models have survived, are real rarity, but you still can a few in the world, A little No. of Stoewer model R200 Typ 40 in Museums and on historic vintage military collectors hand in Europe. The one we acquired is from France. SS Division Radio car was captured by in Normandy at 1944. At early 60s car been rebuild at France, 70s car put at Museum at France.At end of 90s was shipped to New and now in Hong Kong at our 4WD Co. We believe is only one in Asia (very it is very complete no rust and in running condition, with 3 model Kfz.2 very model and it is use for Radio/ field or a field maintenance vehicle at use by the German Waffen-SS Totenkopf at front.
