I remember how much fun these where in FH1, riding around the map blamming the horn while my gunner shot at everything that moved.

Description

The R75 started life as an answer to a request from the Wehrmacht for a motorbike designed with the rigours of the battlefield in mind. It was powered by a 750cc engine that delivered enough power to get the R75 to 95 km/h. The sidecar was provided with a powered wheel and heating, and could mount a machinegun for defence.

Production started in late 1940, and the R75 was soon in use on the Eastern Front and in North Africa. It was found to be particularly resilient to the desert, where the configuration of the engine meant that it was cooled more effectively and the shaft drive was less susceptible to dust than a chain.

Despite this reliability the rival Zündapp KS 750 was found to be the better machine, and an agreement was reached that saw the two motorbikes share nearly 70% of their components, with the aim of phasing out the R75. This never quite happened, and the R75 remained in production through to the end of the war with 16510 delivered. Ours was made by Zero and Stubbfan.
