A significant part of the German Wehrmacht autopark during WWII was made up of 1.5 t cargo trucks. One of the most numerous was Type 2.5-32, which started production in 1938 at the Opel plant in Brandenburg. It was equipped with the six cylinder engine also used in the Kapitan passenger car and had rear drive only. Type 2.5-32 trucks were widely used by all German service arms up to the end of the war at the Soviet-German front, in Italy and in France. Some of them had shelters and were used as ambulance trucks. In total about ten thousand Type 2.5-32 trucks were produced between 1938 and 1942.
