Steyr should build 1.5 ton payload after Schell Plan ( The trucks were provided a total of 4 basic types: 1.5 t, 3 t, 4.5 t and 6.5 t.)a car (Steyr 220) and a truck in the class. Porsche was awarded in 1940 by Steyr a contract to design, the end of 1940 ran the first prototypes, from mid-1941, the main series.
Prototype of the Steyr 1500 A
- Four-wheel drive, intermediate gearbox, rear differential lock, rear axle with leaf springs, front independent suspension with torsion bar springs (typical Porsche ...)
The Steyr 270 Steyr 274 or (Mannschaftswagen) called Porsche Type 147 was under the military designation Steyr 1500 A from mid-1941 until March 1944 and from August 1944 as Steyr 2000 A from Steyr's factory buildings.
Разработка Haflinger началась в 1958 году на заводе Steyr-Daimler-Puch (SDP) в городе Грац (Австрия).
Вездеход Puch 700AP Haflinger разработан самостоятельно, (без участия концерна "Даймлер-Бенц" ) коллективом инженеров под руководством Эриха Ледвинки по заказу швейцарской армии.
Пластмассовая кабина , разработанная для Haflinger 700AB в 1960 г., имела улучшенные эргономические характеристики. На брошюре представлен первый прототип этой модели.
В конце 80-х гг. появилось второе поколение - Pinzgauer 710 и 712.
The vehicle was originally developed in the late 1960s by Steyr-Daimler-Puch of Graz, Austria, and was named after the Pinzgauer, an Austrian breed of horse.
First generation ( 710 and 712 ) prototype was developed around 1969 and production began in 1971
Second generation (716 and 718) In 1980, Steyr-Daimler-Puch started development on a second generation Pinzgauer. The initial second generation Pinzgauer rolled off the assembly line at the end of 1984.
The fully synchronised two-speed transfer box forms part of the centre tube system and is therefore also protected from possible terrain damage. Range changes are possible on the move, and the cross-axle differential locks may also be engaged or disengaged on the move. The independent hub-reduction portal-type swinging half-axles are sprung by coil springs front and rear, or on (6x6) models by rocking beam style parabolic taper-leaf springs shared longitudinally between the rear axle.
С 1985 года налажено производство Pinzgauer II типов 716 (4x4) и 718 (6х6) под торговой маркой "Pinzgauer" другого оформления.
The Pinzgauer is a family of high mobility all-terrain 4WD (4x4) and 6WD (6x6) military utility vehicles. They are manufactured in Guildford, Surrey, United Kingdom, by BAE Systems Land & Armaments. The vehicle was originally developed in the late 1960s by Steyr-Daimler-Puch of Graz, Austria, and was named after the Pinzgauer, an Austrian breed of horse.
The prototype was developed around 1969, as successor of the Steyr-Daimler-Puch Haflinger 700 AP 4x4 light military multi purpose offroad vehicle. The Pinzgauer first generation model (710, 712) was produced until 2000 by Steyr-Daimler-Puch in the city of Graz, Austria.
The Pinzgauer has a chassis design which contributes to its high mobility. It has a central tube chassis with a transaxle which distributes the weight more evenly, and keeps the centre of gravity as low as possible. The differentials are all sealed units and require minimal additional lubrication.
In 2000 the rights were sold to
Automotive Technik Ltd (ATL)
in the UK. ATL was subsequently acquired by
Stewart & Stevenson
Services, Inc. in 2005; in May 2006, Stewart & Stevenson became a subsidiary of the aerospace and defence group
Armor Holdings, Inc. One year later, Armor Holdings was itself acquired
by BAE Systems plc , who discontinued the UK-production of the Pinzgauer in 2008.
When millionaire Mr. Stronach took over the shareholder majority of Steyr-Daimler-Puch offroad vehicles; he gave the right to build the Steyr Pinzgauer to Automotive Technik Ltd (now BAE). As of 2009, in the Graz plant, the Mercedes-Benz G Wagon / Puch G offroad vehicles were being built.
The Pinzgauer also has portal axles like the Unimog to provide extra clearance over obstacles.
