Praga RND

Medium lorry. Probably the most successful prewar truck Praga. It was produced from 1934 until 1953. It has not originally been developed as a military, but the Army evaluated its excellent driveability and reliability. Widely used by the German army. Licenses sold to Yugoslavia. Distinctive sign of a good pre- and post-war production is the cab driver. Postwar vehicles have a circular roof escape. Production of both types (RN and RND) was stopped in 1953, when the car began to focus solely on the production of the V3S.

Škoda 973 (Babeta)

A lightweight four-passenger all-terrain vehicle with a self-supporting body proved to be the best of all vehicles during comparative tests of the armies of the Warsaw Pact countries. Thirty prototypes were built until 1956; the vehicles differed in many versions and the chassis wheelbase. The production capacity in the Czechoslovak Republic was unable to cover the requirements of the Warsaw Pact; therefore, the production was abandoned.
