Steyr Type 2000A Light Cargo Truck, mid-War Version, LeadWarrior Resin kit

Austria's all-wheel drive Steyr 1500 was one of the many personnel/transport vehicles designed to meet the Wehrmacht's requirement for a standard 1,5 ton truck. Presented in 1941, the Steyr was used as a transport in all theaters. A total of more than 20 000 were built, in a wide range of variants. Tamiya offers the basic and command versions. The chassis of the Steyr 1500A and its reinforced variant, the Steyr 2000A were also used for fire trucks, omnibuses (Leadwarrior kit Lw35026), ambulances (Leadwarrior kit Lw35025), a universal Funk-Koffer for radio vehicle, and different types of cargo carriers with open metal or wooden cabins.

This conversion kit presents a mid-war cargo truck on a Steyr 2000A chassis with a full-metal cabin (by the end of the war metal cabins were replaced by wooden Einheitsfahrerhau). On the 2000A type, the rear springs were reinforced, and twin rear wheels were mounted. The spare wheel was stored at the front of the engine compartment. This type of truck was also tested with railway drive (Leadwarrior kit Lw35028).
