This half-tracked vehicle was design during the war on the east, to afford the hard conditions of the terrain. It was a conversion from the common 2 Ton, truck , Opel Blitz. Around 4000 units were produced until 1944. The last years of the war wasn’t over Russian land and the conditions were changed, so a quick vehicle for the roads were needed, so some of them, were reconverted to wheels again.
Altaya model is basic again, with a few bad details , although the track looks better in this model. A nice truck what isn’t on other Diecast Manufacturers.
