Thread: MVs in 'The Bridge at Remagen'

    Default MVs in 'The Bridge at Remagen'

    Can anyone give me details of who supplied all the MVs in the 1969 film 'The Bridge at Remagen'? I know the Austrian Army supplied all the M24s and the Czech Army supplied OT-810 halftracks and Praga RN trucks but where were all the other MVs sourced from?

    Thanks,

    Colin

    Great vehicles in the film! Can't answer the question but I couldn't resist a reply.
    My GMC was there in 1944 serving with the 276th engineer battalion 😁

    Sorry I meant the truck is a 44. Obviously the bridge was early 45.
