Greek army.

I made this post for everything about the greek army to avoid stockpile post on the folder.

Now to the matter.


First thanks to Brock for giving me so good drawing advices :D .
I still have to make the characteristics (suggestions welcome) but I think that will be a 6X4. Although I am still thinking on the capacity I have put the minimum in 2 tons or so. The length and width is something with I am struggling. I suppose that the length will be around the 7 or 8 meters (23; 26 ft more or less) and the width between 2 and 3 meters. The ground clearance. I have no idea of what is the standard for trucks.

Also I am thinking on ad some little changes to the draw. Like a slightly longer visor and some little visual changes such as the greek coat of arms.

Hosting images with Dropbox requires some finessing. Read this thread to learn more.

In overall layout the design offered looks very much like the German leichte geländegängige Einheits-Lastkraftwagen, details of which can be found here.. Rather than opting for a 6x4 vehicle I would recommend a 6x6 configuration for better cross-country performance.

Germany has a side range of motor vehicles available for either export or co-production. Germany assisted Turkey with the development of its indigenous automobile industry. Details of the proposed plan can be found here

Well it was my starting point in conjunction with the Bedford MW. On the cab I changed the roof and the frontal window. I the back I changed the wheels and size and other details.
About the 6X6 I am considering it.
I am not sure yet but is quite possible that I will use a foreign motor.

That's a rather hefty vehicle you are describing. If those are the performance stats for the picture you've included above, I draw the following conclusions.

1 - The unladen weight of the vehicle (which I interpret to be 9800 kg) is much too high. Add the cargo and you are asking the engine (which is not specified) to haul 15 tonnes.
2 - The ground clearance is much too small - the truck would bottom out too often on any sort of rough terrain.

In that case I will reduce the weight to 8800 kg of curb weight and 4800 kg of capacity. About the engine. The 1945-6 Greece wouldn't able to design a truck engine on their own. So any help from other power either in form of a help with the design of an engine or an existing engine is welcome (not asking for a fully detailed engine just a name with horsepowers). I estimate (with my wide experience and knowledge on cars :P ) that around of 130 hp should be enough.

I 500mm more reasonable?
