The Mercedes-Benz L3000 was a common 4x2 3,1-ton rear axle drive truck used by Germany in World War II. The engine it used was a Daimler-Benz OM 65/4 75 hp 4-cylinder diesel engine. It was used alongside the Opel Blitz, and proved even more reliable in rough terrain. It was used extensively by the Afrika Korps and on the other fronts. It existed in three versions, the L3000, the L3000A, and the L3000S. It was produced from 1938 on to 1943, and by that time more than 27,700 of all versions had been built. This made it the most produced Mercedes-Benz truck of World War II.
