Hi, 

I wanted to ask for permission if you allow me, to use Opel Blitz truck for the purpose of my mod Battlefield Balkan 1991-95 (Battlefield Vietnam mod). Can you give me permission to use it, I would be most grateful and I would give you credit, of course! 

Many thanks in advance! 

~Laufer

Wait, did JNA and other warring factions at that time still used Opel Blitz?

AFAIK, the only WWII vehicles used that i've seen on news and amateur videos (taken by combatant themselves) during the Yugoslav wars were the M36 Jackson (here's an example from now defunct DFF's Aktuell on it's final broadcast in 1991) and the T-34/85.

Truth to be told. Opel like Opel from that period of 1991-95, no. But it's the closest substitute for TAM 4500/5000 used by Yugoslavian army from that period.  😉

As far as I know, the TAM 5000 is a license build Magirus Deutz , which - honestly said - looks quite different from the Blitz. Maybe it would be better to look for such a model?

This maybe could be a good base: https://www.turbosquid.com/FullPreview/Index.cfm/ID/303589 or https://free3d.com/3d-model/dajc-3689.html

So after a short discussion between the Sarges, I guess we can give you permission to use the Blitz. Thats mainly because we can´t remember who created the original model long time ago for BGF, so we can not ask. This permission is of course under condition. Copyright is still with the original author.

Oh and it would be nice if you can post a pic of the converted model here 🙂

Hi to you all lads! 

Sorry for a bit late response, but I was busy with my job. Thank you for your approval. Anyway, you were right about similarity of Opel Blitz from this mod with TAM 4500/5000, so I worked something else out by working on other 3ds model I found on the internet. In any case many thanks for support and approval, once more!  😀
