Re: Why is it called WK2?

Stands for nothing.

It's merely a code.

It would be interesting to know if the rest do in deed stand for something, or nothing at all
Interesting fact. +rep

Re: Why is it called WK2?

^^^ In that case....WK probably are the initials for german words....such as in der wagon "W" so Wagon and something that starts with a "K"... just a thought...since Diamler had a ton of input in the WK from the ground up...

Re: Why is it called WK2?

Well I couldnedt get it out of my head, so I did a little more digging and it seems that early vehicles (Willis-Overland) had designations that where actualy short for something, but after that, like it was suggested before, they are either variations of the original designations, or random letters.

Guess we'll never know for sure.
