DAF six wheeler

YA 328 nicknamed 'Dikke Daf', The Netherlands 2005.

Editor: It's nickname stems from the engine noise (Hercules engine) and its appearance, it means 'Fat Daf'. The YA-328 (along with the 318) was DAF's first military vehicle to be built after the 2nd WW. Several thousand of this type were eventually built by the Dutch company between 1953 and 1958.
