Not exactly Unimogs, but they're similar and I have always wanted one.

I am surprised, but not surprised, America had to create their own overpriced versions.

The first two are Russian Kamaz which is used by the Russian Military.

If you're referring to the HMMWV then they're not in the same weight class. The US equivalent to a Unimog is the FMTV (Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles). These are 2.5T-5T vehicles. (The HMMWV is 1.25T.) Oshkosh Defense makes the FMTV. Too bad they are only available to the DOD and it's Allies.

Not like anyone will be seeing a Styer built FMTV in the US anytime soon either.

except, Steyr-Puch's heavy truck division is now owned by.... General Dynamics.

so who's licensing whom?


btw, Steyr-Puch is also well known for... the Pinzgauer. indeed, the Steyr 12M18 that morphed into the FMTV could be considered the Pinz's big brother.

Partially right.

GD bought Steyr's Special vehicle division. They're not involved in trucks.

http://www.steyr-ssf.com/

Steyr was taken over by Magna (Magna Steyr)
Steyr Engines Division was bought out from the Management and is now Steyr Motors.

The FMTV is largely produced in the US. Concept and initial production by Stewart & Stevenson in Houston. S&S were acquired by the Armor Holding in 06. The Armor Holding has been bought by British Aerospace / BAE Systems in 07.

There's nothing that states portal axles are required! Hell, this is supposed to be a Unimog thread anyway!

Too bad we're not allowed to own those U1500's. The US Army has a few of them though.

I prefer the rounded lines of the older 4xx Series from the 60's & 70's.
