East german vehicles

We in the West can look back on over 120 years of automotive design and manufacture and plot progress in a virtually continuous linear fashion. However, the post War development of the automotive industry in Eastern Germany is quite a different story. In all parts of the West there was a development break during the Second World War, but after the War the growth of the industry in the two halves of Germany went in different directions for many years. Automotive development in West Germany was aided and abetted by cash and investment from America and the Allies, while, for a time, industry of all types in Eastern Germany suffered a certain amount of asset stripping and disinvestment. There was also a stark contrast between the state-driven production methods in the German Democratic Republic and the market-focused development in the West, which today, two decades after the collapse of the GDR, when they are again on the same economic level, it is hard to imagine.
However, the eventful years of the GDR automotive industry and the vehicles it produced are recorded in this book with neither political or economic considerations nor really with regard to the technical expertise that went into their development, but rather as a celebration of the vehicles themselves. It is a pictorial documentation of over forty years of automotive manufacture in the GDR and as such is the most comprehensive record of these vehicles that has yet been published.
When the Berlin Wall was in place, little was known of the unique motor vehicles which populated the roads of the GDR behind it. Although 'Westerners' got the odd sighting of mystery vehicles, and then a virtual invasion of Trabants in the years immediately following the Wall's demolition, most Europeans have never before had the opportunity to see the plethora of makes and models which abounded in the GDR. Here, for the first time in English, is a complete pictorial record of all the East German cars, trucks and buses. Christian Suhr and Ralf Weinreich have tracked down an example of every GDR marque in their new book, and have taken portraits in authentic surroundings in what was East Germany. Every one of these vehicles is described by a marque expert to ensure accuracy of information. Now automotive enthusiasts of all persuasions can indulge in a truly fascinating voyage of discovery.

The use of UAVs to suppress enemy air defenses first emerged in the first months of OIF. As previously mentioned, the Air Force attempted to use Predators to destroy Iraqi defense installations. However, the Predator proved too slow and vulnerable for Iraqi MIGs, which quickly shot down several Predators. As a result, UAV use in the suppression of enemy air defenses is limited in practice. This may change in the future as the Department of Defense foresees UAVs eventually fulfilling strike missions in early combat operations as discussed in the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Roadmap, 2005 – 2030.
