1969 Mercedes-Benz Unimog Military Truck

1969 Mercedes-Benz Unimog Military Truck

Here we found a utility military truck made by Mercedes-Benz, this a Unimog built in 1969 ex Medical Vehicle Unit in Desert Storm War under Belgian Army. Unimog is a range of multi-purpose auto four-wheel drive medium trucks, designed with permanent all-wheel drive, with equal-size wheels, in order to be driven on roads at higher speeds. With their very high ground clearance and a flexible frame that is essentially a part of the suspension, Unimogs are not designed to carry as much load as regular trucks.

Due to their off-road capabilities, Unimogs can be found in jungles, mountains and deserts as military vehicles, fire fighters, expedition campers, and even in competitions like truck trials and Dakar Rally rally raids.

Unimogs are used in two kinds of competition: Dakar Rally and other desert rally competitions, and slow-moving Truck Trials over obstacles.

Unimogs have won the truck class of the Dakar several times in the 1980s, often by accident, as their main purpose is usually to provide support for cars and motorbikes. High-powered factory-sponsored entries of truck companies aiming for the overall win have since taken the laurels, with Unimogs used mainly for service purposes.
