Unfortunately it needs a registration.
Feel free to copy paste or to show a reference to f.e. the 6.5 ton Opel Blitz. Showing how the rather classic 3 ton Opel Blitz weighed a negative 3.3 tons when empty would also work, I guess.
JSTOR is free to register. Feel free to pass further comment on something you clearly have not read, or understood.
You are earnestly asserting that the very basic and fundamental concepts of empty weight, carry capacity and total weight of a truck were somehow mixed up and then wrongly applied by the German army.
The assertion is both ridiculous and wrong. If you understood and are correctly representing the article, the good professor mixed things up in translation, had a bad day or maybe the deadline was a bit too tight. Either way that gem has been left buried in that journal for good reason.
Not treating every unreviewed, or even reviewed, article as the gospel truth on a particular subject matter is a good practice in general, the more outlandish the claim, the more caution required.
Having done no such thing, i find im going to ignore you from now on as you have again failed to read the article or understand it or the maths in post 7.
Which in part shows in game by week 11 the Heer is still operating 99% of its start truck inventory, when Major-General Eduard Wagner informs AH 50% of the Heers trucks are out of service, truck and car numbers here https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015017684799&view=1up&seq=314 which by Sept had 218k actual trucks, with a nominal 2.5 freight capacity, and 169k passenger cars with capacity of under a ton for passengers, giving it 713000 tons historically if it decides passengers can walk and instead carry freight, and all are in service, while in game it has a capacity of 1050000 tons and all are in service.
