Following its establishment in 1955, the Bundeswehr (German armed forces) was in desperate need of a reliable 5-tonne truck. This led to a extensive tendering process in the German truck industry, from which Mercedes-Benz and MAN emerged as the ultimate victors. The MAN 630 L2A and MAN 630 L2AE variants of the MAN 630 were subsequently delivered to the Bundeswehr starting in 1958. The L2AE variant was equipped with single tyres. Approximately 20,000 models of this variant were purchased by the Bundeswehr. Both the MAN 630 L2A and L2AE were all-wheel drive trucks suitable for high terrain and featured a 136 hp multi-fuel engine with an 8.275 litre capacity.
