IBG Models 1/35 EINHEITSDIESEL Kfz.61 Fernsprechbetriebskraftwagen

The Einheitsdiesel (Uniform Diesel), as the vehicle was generally called, was built from 1937 to 1940 by MAN (ca.1800), Henschel (ca.1500), Magirus (ca.2500), Bussing-NAG (ca.3200), Faun (ca.700), Daimler-Benz (ca.550), and probably Vomag. The vehicle was technically advanced, robust and reliable. Because of its complex running-gear design (six wheel drive and individual suspension of all wheels), the Uniform Diesel had remarkable off-road capability, and was thus very popular among the troops. One disadvantage was the low load limit of 2375kg, compared to the net weight of 4925kg.

Production was halted in 1940, as less expensive two-axle trucks with comparable performance figures existed by then. Einheitsdiesel was widely used by the Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe on almost all theatres of was as standard truck, radio van, telephone exchange van, field kitchen, service van, and lots of other versions.
