Saw a Unimog troop carrier in the movie " Confessions of a dangerous mind", the Chuck Barris movie. Yeah the Gong Show guy. Caught a glimpse in a scene early on.

S 404 in "War Stories" NBC

Also an S 404 in the made-for-tv-movie "WAR STORIES" last night on NBC. Also some old Land Rovers as well! The ROVERS got the most screenplay of course.

Tears of the sun has a mog in it too, didn't watch it enough times to identify it though...

TV Commercial for Land Rover

I saw a TV commercial for Land Rover and in the background their appears to be a 404, red, following a Land Rover through a creek. They speed through the shot quickly, so I couldn't get a good look. Anyone else seen this one?

Mog in Movie<s>

There was a special on National Georgraphic channel in which an Oxford Professor and author travelled to the four extremes - Hottest Place, Driest place, Wettest place, and coldest place - While in the Atacama desert in Chile he accompanied some Chilean commandos into the desert, they were transported there by a 416 with large 14.5x20 sand tires (Michelin XS by the looks). It's the first 416 that didn't smoke like crazy that I have ever seen ! ;-)


There is also a RHD 404 in the movie Congo - horrible movie but there scene where they drive from the Congolese airport to another airport is a good 5 - 10 minutes. Funny thing is that they carry on a conversation in the back of the 404 which rides rock steady by the way, even stranger is the turbo diesel sound they dubbed over the anemic M180 sound.

Dug this one up out of the archives...

there are a few MOGs in "The Gods Must be Crazy 2"
Not as good as the original film, but the MOGs make up for that [:)] (You know, a bit like "Top Gun" - where the F14s were the stars[;)])

I caught the end of "extreme machines" or something like it on discovery channel, and they had a piece on a Unimog set up for yarding rail cars.
