The Opel Blitz was the main truck used by German forces during the Second World War. It was deployed extensively on all fronts in huge numbers and considered to be the ‘working mule’ of the Wehrmacht. Due to its sturdy frame, the robust system of rigid axles with leaf springs and the twin-wheels on the back, the Opel Blitz was able to carry a payload of over 3 tons. The 3600 cc. engine was easy to maintain and provided 75 hp. Largely due to its great flexibility it was the developmental platform for several specialist models and versions such as the Kfz. 385 ‘Tankwagen’ which was deployed as the principal refilling truck of the Luftwaffe.. The vehicle was equipped with a rear fuel tank, pumping system and a simplified cabin with fabric roof. The exhaust system and silencer was repositioned to allow for the safe refueling of aircraft.
