The Unimog was never designed for military purpose, but those things changed when Mercedes-Benz took over the Unimog from Boehringer. In 1955 the Unimog 404 was introduced. The focus of this vehicle was less on the agricultural aspects and more on its abilities to pass difficult areas. The Unimog was way faster with its maximum speed of 95km/h and more powerful with 82 horsepower’s. The Unimog 404 wasn’t only beloved by army’s worldwide but also by organizations such as firefighters. The 404 was truly a champion off-road with its abilities to climb areas that are 45% steep on its own without the help of others.
