The Csepel D344 was a Hungarian truck made from 1963 to the early eighties. The "D" stands for its diesel powered engine, and the number 3 for its carrying capacity of 3 tons. The truck was originally developed for military service, but later it became available also for civilians (for example, it was widely used in campaign for agricultural purposes). The vehicle had an excellent overland ability, so it often appeared on Off-road races.
Some of them were sold in China and even in some African countries.

Hope you like it ;)

WH2007That'a a cool picture of the Csepel truck. I like the way you did the wheels and other little details. The background is nice too.

I've seen one in a tractor museum in Mezőkövesd and I really liked it design. Some Csepel trucks were used in Poland as well - they were mainly fuel tankers. I've read somwhere that Csepel did some trucks in cooperation with Polish Jelcz and Star companies which provided the cabs.

alitta2Thanks! Yes, that's right. I only know that the Csepel D750 was one of their products made in cooperation, but maybe there were more too. Another interesting cooperation was with Volvo: the factory produced about 1000 Volvo Laplanders by license, and a part of them were sold to the Malaysian and (of course)to the Swedish armies.
