Ford Germany

Ford already produced in Germany well before the war. Ford Germany was setup to produce parts in Hamburg in 1912. By the fall of 1924 the US Ford Motor Company established a sales office in Berlin to import 1,000 tractors. From August 1925 the Ford Motor Company Aktiengesellschaft entered the Berlin Companies Register and setup a factory at Westhafen, Berlin, to assemble kits and components with the first Model T (1,177 delivered in 1926) and more in 1927, Ford Model A in 1928, then a new factory at Cologne (Niehl) for 250,000 cars annually, marred by the 1929 Wall Street crash. It started production in May 1931 with the Ford Model A and in 1932 Model B. In 1933 the Ford Köln and the truck Model B V-8 and the Eifel in 1935-1940, making the company Germany's 4th largest automaker. The company was re-organised in 1939 and became Ford-Werke. With a strong support of Ford as late as 1941, the company severed its links with the US and focused on Military trucks for the German war effort until 1945, notably the Maultier half-track. Production restarted in May already and by 1948, Ford USA had reinvested in the company which best seller became the Taunus in Europe. The G398 was its first postwar military truck.


Ford G 398, the filiation with the later models is obvious. When the Bundeswehr was formed in 1956, the procurement of trucks in the 3t payload class was ordered, Daimler-Benz and Magirus-Deutz offered trucks in this class but already received orders in other segments and thus, Ford Germany was chosen to produced the cheaper G398SAM. 8,000 were built total, sharing with the Mercedes, MAN and Magirus the same boxy cabin. The chassis, along with the side-controlled V8 petrol engine, was a pre-war development by Ford (V 3000 S). It is comparatively narrow, but the Bundeswehr required the use of the standard driver's cab and case of the three-ton variant. This prompted Ford to widen the axles, but this did not significantly improve off-road handling. Due to the combination of insufficient track width and high center of gravity, the vehicle tended to tip over. With its angular bonnet, the vehicle was reminiscent of the much larger MAN 630 L2A/L2AE, and had an eight-cylinder V engine with an output of 68 kW (92 hp) and switchable all-wheel drive.

Of the 8,000 vehicles built, around 2,580 vehicles were equipped with a box body (G398SAM-S3). This served to use the vehicle as a workshop vehicle, field kitchen, staff vehicle or medical vehicle. Some vehicles were also used as carriers for various radars. The remaining approximately 5,440 vehicles were provided with platforms and tarpaulins/bows (G398SAM) for material transport or as tractors. A few vehicles were manufactured by the Meiler company as three-way tippers. With the exception of a few special vehicles, the trucks were phased out by 1975. Successor models to the Bundeswehr's three-tonner series were no longer pursued.

Sd.Kfz 2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 were half-tracks designed just before the war as prime movers, to carry supplies, ammunition, personal, and tow artillery. Many were also converted during the war as armored versions carrying AA FLAK guns (Flakvierling, 37 mm, or the legendary 88 mm Rheinmetall als used as tank hunters), or were converted as nebelwerfer (rocket launching armored vehicles). They were built by Hanomag, Steyr, Mercedes-Benz, Bussing and many other manufacturers until 1945, over 20,000 half-tracks.
