Looks Russsian or Czechoslovakia
My brother has contacts with some folks in Germany who sell Mercedes 6 wheel all wheel drive that climb mountains with 1400 miles on them for $6500. They are from WWII.

b2rtch – “I “love” Russian and Czechoslovak army trucks.” It’s easier to get one of these, Made in Russia Ural Motorcycle 2WD Patrol model. Of course this one is mine, first picture taken back in 2011, second one just 2 weeks ago. Read about them here – www.imz-ural.com

I know Ural motorcycles for years.
I was thinking about buying one years ago.
In Europe we had the original 750cc Zundapp and BMW.
In France we had similar bikes made by Gnome et Rhone.
I still like the trucks better.

That Link You Posted up in #4 doesn’t appear to have a lot to do with those Trucks other than to say they are Parked there.

The Link & Article is all about this:

Did I miss something?

I know about he link,I just try to know who makes these trucks.
These bikes were made in France in the 1930 for the army by Gnome et Rhone and under license by Terrot .
They were the inspiration for the similar bikes made by Zundapp and BMW and now by Ural.
The french were forced to make them for the German army during the war.

Gnome et Rhone were the inventor of the airplane engine with rotating cylinders.
I worked on a Gnome et Rhone in school
