Opel Blitz is a German Transport unit. It is the standard and cost-free means of transport of getting German infantry on the battlefield. If fired upon by enemy fire (even small arms fire) for a small duration, the Opel Blitz will permanently disappear and the transported unit will be forced to dismount. If it is struck by an anti-tank gun or something else powerful, the unit inside can instantly die.

Overview[edit | edit source]

A reliable three ton truck manufactured by Opel, the Blitz 3.6 became the symbol of German logistics throughout the Great War, manufactured in a number of variants, from the standard transport version to the four-wheel drive Blitz A. It also served as the basis for the Maultier all-terrain transport vehicle, capable of negotiating the challenging terrain of the Soviet Union's western republics.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Blitz is much like the unarmed, lightweight vehicles of the Allies and other Axis factions, a temporary means of transportation for infantry, artillery, and anti-tank units: A single-use vehicle to get your units where you need them. Keep them out of enemy lines of fire, as they are very vulnerable to incoming fire.
