THE BACKBONE OF ITALIAN LOGISTICS

​At the start of First World War, further to the 15 TER, was put into production the Series 18 that in the course of 7 years provided more than 20.000 vehicles: the 18BL version was an authentic champion in the history of Italian Motorization! The contribution of the 18 BL version was decisive during the counterattack in May 1916, which stopped the advance of the Austrians (Strafexpedition) in Trentino. In fact, in these circumstances, also due to the liability of 18 BL, the Autieri (drivers of military vehicles) put in act the biggest troops transport of the whole war, transferring from the plains to the Alps, in very short time, more than 100.000 soldiers.
