Ford V3000S/SSM Maultier With 2cm Flak38

Produced by Ford in Cologne, the V3000S truck was the successor to the earlier G917T. It saw service on all fronts with around 25,000 produced between 1942 and 1945. The V3000S/SSM Maultier ("Mule") was based on the Ford V3000S with a tracked suspension system based on the British Universal Carrier. The platform was subsequently modified for other uses including as an anti-aircraft half track by mounting a 2cm Flak 38 on the flatbed for air defence.
