"UNIversal-MOtor-Gerät", Gerät being the German word for machine or device.

If I am not etirely mistaken, then the UNIMOG is made in Autria somewhere, based on a Mercedes-frame with Mercedes-motor, but gear-box, wheel-support and 4-w-drive made by an Austrian company (Steyr?). This is a typical Autrian work-horse for the steep Alpine-roads and off-raods there.....

Maybe Maggo can tell us some more...?
