Hi Guys,

Are there any statistics on how much motor transport the Ostheer had when it invaded the USSR?

Many thanks,

Sid

C. 600,000 motor vehicles in total, including c. 247,500 1-ton to >2-ton and c. 202,500 2-ton to 4.5-ton LKW and PKW. The rest were mostly various motorcycle combinations as well as some specialized vehicles.

Do you have anything on motor transport attrition rates?
