    Default 'Where Eagles Dare' German vehicles

    I was wondering if any of you had any information about where all the German military vehicles were obtained from for the film 'Where Eagles Dare?' I know that some at least came from the Austrian Army e.g. the 1958 Saurer APC which appears in the film. What about the others? I believe 16 Kubelwagens were used in the filming and only two survived!

    Thanks for your help.

    Although not the film 'Where Eagles Dare' but in the British film 'The Eagle Has Landed' the clips of StuG III on railway wagons at the beginning of the film were filmed in Finland.

    My reference to this claim is Cinema Retro Movie Classics special on 'Where Eagles Dare'. Page 77.

    'Of the 16 Kubelwagens used in the film,two are known to have survived,with UK-based Club 'Tiger1 ' claiming to own one'.

    The Kubels that were crashed were stunt replicas, crashed, straightened out and used several times over, so there were not 14 of them,
    I nearly bought the red Graf & Stift bus complete with bullet holes! that starred in the film when it came up for sale after filming
