You seem very knowledgeable about this type of ve-Hicle.
Not really. I saw a video of one a couple of years ago, driving out of a river, up the bank and then up a ridiculously steep hill. I was impressed enough to look into some details, expecting to see F1 levels of horsepower and lorryloads of torque. The relatively low numbers surpised me enough for it to stick in my mind. I had a look at the unimog site to check it was still the case - the numbers I gave are for the most powerful model.

If you look at the power specs, they seem very underpowered. ~200bhp, ~350lb-ft...but they have nearly all of it at very low revs and really extreme gearing. Put it in low gear and it may only do 10mph, but it'll pull like a train while doing it. You seem very knowledgeable about this type of ve-Hicle.
