There are many different types of military ground vehicles designed for specific uses in various arenas of conflict, such as tanks and self propelled guns, but here we are focusing mainly on German World War II utility, recon & personnel vehicles which carry limited or no weaponry.

Below are a few examples of German WWII military vehicles of interest in this category, along with basic data. To view comprehensive listings and history of WWII military ground vehicles, including tanks from around the world go to this Wikipedia link.

VW Kuebelwagen 1.jpg

Volkswagen Kubelwagen Type 62

Designed by Ferdinand Porsche especially for military use, this vehicle was the German answer to the US Jeep. Although a 4x4 was prototyped, only a 2 wheel drive was adopted, but was surprisingly efficient in poor road conditions with its high ground clearance & smooth underside.

Volkswagen Type 166 Schwimmwagen

Based on the Kubelwagen, this amphibious version had 4 wheel drive only on first & reverse gears as introduced on the prototypes & a redesigned underside making it suitable for use on water. A screw propeller which could be directly coupled to the crankshaft was lowered into the water to give it propulsion. The road wheels via the normal steering wheel acted as rudders.

Suspension: The Carden Lloyd type suspension employed by the Panzer I was practically identical to the light tank track system used on the Universal and Bren-gun carriers
