Entering production in 1976, the Unimog 1300L is a medium 4x4 utility truck manufactured by Mercedes-Benz. Produced in a staggering array of models, the Unimog family has found extensive use by military and civilian users worldwide.
Available in Steel Beasts Professional as a cargo, engineering vehicle, troop carrier, or Ambulance, the cargo version this vehicle can provide resupply services for ammunition to the armed vehicles, infantry squads, and missile/hmg teams represented in the simulation. The Unimog 1300L vehicle is available to Blue, Red, and other factional forces, and will only transport or resupply units of its own side. Thus, another factions vehicle or infantry unit cannot use a Blue Unimog truck, regardless of enemy/neutral/allied status.
Resupply of ammunition can be accomplished by moving the unit that requires replenishment close to the Unimog truck and then waiting. Resupply will automatically commence within a couple of minutes. Note that full resupply may take some time.
As an engineering vehicle the Unimog 1300L may mark cleared paths through mine fields, carry barrier material (concertina wire rolls), and construct wire obstacles in a manner identical to the M113G3 Engineer although it may not tow a MICLIC trailer.
The Unimog 1300L is crew-able at the Commander's (F7), Driver's (F9), and Squad Leader's (F11 if carrying troops) positions. Though normally unarmed, this vehicle may optionally be equipped with a ring mounted 7.62mm MG3 at the Commander's position.
As a troop transport the Unimog 1300L carries a dismount section of 10 men, equipped with 2 M136 (AT-4) light anti-armour weapons, a MG, and 5,56mm rifles while as an engineering vehicle, it lifts a 6 man pioneer section carrying 5.56mm rifles. .
