The UniMog 404S came to us after East Wind I showed the need for a medium cargo truck for the WARPAC troops.

It had previously done service as a dry chemical fire truck at an airfield in Switzerland. By the time it got over to us if had lost its dry chemical tanks and had been sitting for a few years.

This is how it was when we first visited it.





And here it is towing the M105 trailer that it would later get the bed from.



And here it is with that M105 bed mounted - having had fluids changed and a basic tune up and carb rebuild.


It was then moved to one of the community member's shop - where the bed was expertly transformed into something that was not readily identifiable as an M105 trailer bed.


After that it was painted in a nice Soviet green - color matched from a Soviet canteen :-)

It served in this manner as East Wind 2 - with just bows for the back and no troop seats.




For logistics reasons it sat East Wind 3 out (a decision that was to prove terrible given the muddy conditions experienced at EW3)

For East Wind 4 - it once again made it to the field.
With its blue lights removed and the addition of troop seats it proved very useful to transport both troops and supplies.
It continued in this configuration for East Wind 5

Between East Wind 5 and East Wind 6 the RoMur (since it was a vismod of a UnIMog into something like a Robur it was dubbed RoMur) was painted in the East German 3-Color camo pattern.
