About the Opel Blitz – Lightweight Truck

The Opel Blitz was the name given to various German trucks built by the German Opel automobile manufacturer beginning in the 1930s.

The Blitz was used mainly to haul soldiers and supplies to the front, namely ammunition, artillery shells, fuel, and food. The truck could also be used for logistical purposes such as a radio station or mobile command post.
