About the Schwimmwagen - Amphibious Utility Vehicle:
The most widely produced amphibious military vehicle of all time, the Schwimmwagen featured a welded one-piece hull and rear propeller that allowed the vehicle to transfer from land to water with relative ease. The front wheels doubled as rudders, so steering was done with the steering wheel both on land and in water. During World War II the German Army produced nearly 16,000 Schwimmwagens, and due to their unique look they’ve remained a popular collector vehicle even today.
