Borgward is an automobile manufacturer that was founded by Carl F. W. Borgward . The original company, based in Bremen in Germany, ceased operations in 1961. The Borgward group produced four brands of cars: Borgward, Hansa, Goliath and Lloyd. From 1956 the Trucks were owned by the diamond on the hood to the inventory of the Federal border guard and the race for the Initial equipment of the Bundeswehr with tactical, all-terrain Trucks NATO-class 1t could decide Borgward. The Borgward B2000 A/O (all-wheel drive/Otto engine) prevailed against the Opel Blitz. The Bundeswehr introduced after the end of use, no successor models of 0,75 t gl-class, the Unimog 1,5 t gl covered this area.

At the beginning of 1953 asked the Department of Koblenz under the direction of Secretary of state , Theodor Blank, later the Minister of defence, the Association of the German motor vehicle industry to determine which companies in the motor vehicle industry in the location, vehicle types and models to develop and, if necessary, at a later time to produce. In July 1954, a prototype was in a comparison test on Westerland are presented. For the off-road capability, a selectable rear-wheel drive and a fully-synchronized 5-speed gearbox without reduction with a as the off-road gear imaginary, extremely briefly laid out the first course continued. A distribution differential was not provided. Both in the case of the comparison demonstration, in January of 1955, as well as other demonstrations of Goliath impressed by landrover. He stayed several times in the test area plug, lost part of his exhaust system off-road, and was hampered by the extremely low ground clearance, a strong position relative to its competitors. For the comparative testing, in the Federal border guard school in Lubeck Goliath downstream of had, the ground clearance is significantly increased, and the body widened. Despite all this, this car could not convince. Hinge fractures of the axis occurred in the premises more frequently, damage to the gearbox is revealed in the context of the demonstration, the steering wheel gearshift proved to be totally inappropriate. Significant defects of the Goliath in the face of competition from Auto Union. Also in the second Bay of lubeck testing in the fall of 1955, the competitor is convinced significantly more. 20. January 1956 delivered Goliath with a considerable delay of twelve optimized patterns of vehicles , due to lapse of time is hardly in the comparison test were able to take part. These vehicles had a reinforced body, direction indicators as a direction of travel indicator and headlight protection grilles. Technical Defects were responsible for numerous failures. Furthermore, the vehicles in terrain, to trips always eaten A Goliath vehicle was towed cars from DKW-site. In the report of the teaching force Andernach the shortcomings of the Goliath were listed. Without a doubt, the Auto-Union cut-site, starting the car again, much better. Low trial and testing phases, and many shortcomings were offset by costs the least development (spring, 1956). He was in contrast to the 1957 and subsequently filed Goliath type 34 as technically immature , and due to the lack of the Central differential was the drivetrain is so stiff, that when the troops try to number the teeth from the plateand bevel the rear axle broke. Instead of the type 31 was the Munga-model of the Auto Union for the German armed forces selected.Of the now significantly improved type 34 with a four-stroke engine was placed in the body version with a 2000 mm wheelbase in April 1958, the German Bundeswehr for testing purposes. Already after 600 km, the car had to be placed because of damage to the motor at a standstill; a valve spring was broken. The vehicle with the chassis number 34.0100 01 had then again at 10. In may 1958 an accident in the testing phase and had to be set at the manufacturer's factory maintenance. Thereafter, the Test was not continued.
