Kubelwagen was the Nazi version of the Jeep/GPW. Strange little vehicle, and yup, very similar to the Thing.

2wd vs 4, lighter, faster, and IIRC a little more capable than jeep in everything but the most extreme stuff. Always looked they would make the ultimate Bug Out Vehicle.
I think theres a video on youtube where they pitted a gpw vs one of them. It was pretty sweet.
