Portal axles as standard so great ground clearance.

Capable they are but they are a bitch to get out when you do get them stuck.

Any vehicle is only as good as the driver A driver with little experience will make even a Mog. look useless. A driver has to have confidence in his vehicle and the ability to quickly assess the obstacle in front and the way its to be tackled. My last 10 years in the Army was mainly involved in all aspects of Driver training
These film shots are staged for promotional / sale use there are many off road vehicles coming out of Europe these days that will match a Mog.

They were pretty good but the tyres used by the ADF did not provide good flotation in sand or soft conditions. As to speed...they were faster than our SIII's and like a hare compared to the "Inter's".

Noticed at 3:45 on the third video. They say something about the UniMog getting to a disaster area first but there's a Disco already there.

Happy Days

Love the little SWB's. I didn't know they were imported to Australia.

The Aus army ones were pieces of crap............sure off road they were reasonably capable having twin locked diffs, nice low low range and good clearance. In my final years of choco's I never admitted to have a mog licence so that I didn't have to drive them.

After 21 Yrs. reg. army I did nearly 2 yrs. in the reserve all in transport, It was during this time I experienced the Mog and it ability. I experienced 2 trucks in what you would have to call very serious bogs simular to one of the pictures posted here only worse. One was recovered by RAEME the other by two 6X6 international that they replaced, even their own winch seemed to have limitations. I experienced trucks in Vietnam that were that badly bogged the only thing that stoped the going deeper in to the mud was that theirt trays were floating on the surface of the ground These were mainly 4X4 Internationals, a lot of these vehicles managed to self recover them self


There is another member of this forum that can support this statement he was there and experienced it too
