    Add in the other US trucks excluding Jeeps and the total is north of 175,000. Almost all of them true off road capable.

    Jan 43 LL trucks made up less than 1% of the Soviet truck fleet. By 1944 more than 1 in 5 Soviet trucks was LL buy 45 it was 1 in 3. This is important because the Spring of 43 is the last Soviet offensive that outran its supplies and got chopped by German reserves. German combat strength would hover around 4000 AFV's in the East until Bagration. Meanwhile Soviet AFV strength dropped from over 10K to under 8K so the ration actually improved for Germany. Plus the German's were falling back on interior lines and scorching the earth. Yes the Soviets got better conceptually, the VVS was dominant etc but the ability to move supplies just behind the advancing troops plays a critical role.
