The Schwimmwagen (literally "swimming car") was an amphibious 4x4 utility car used extensively by the German army and SS during World War II. It was based on the basic Volkswagen chassis, but had a watertight hull and retractable prop for waterborne propulsion. The Schwimmwagen's prop could not operate in reverse, so a pair of boat oars was supplied as auxillary propulsion in the water. With over 14,000 made during the war, the Schwimmwagen was the most produced amphibious vehicle made and was commonly used in place of the non-amphibious Kubelwagen.
