Tarpan off-road vehicles and pick-ups: books

A book on Tarpan 4x4s or pick-ups? Here are illustrated books on the history, models and technology of Tarpan 4x4s and pick-ups.

Wojskowy samochód osobowo-terenowy Honker


This extensive publication serves as the first comprehensive source of information on the military off-road vehicle Honker, its variants, and prototypes. It primarily focuses on its applications within the Polish Armed Forces, compiling the latest available data.

The book traces the evolution of the concept of a military off-road vehicle, directly stemming from the Tarpan vehicle, specially designed for agricultural use. Essential features such as off-road capabilities and terrain adaptability were crucial for a military off-road vehicle.
Since its adoption into the Polish Armed Forces in 1991, the Honker has been consistently procured in varying quantities annually (exact data unavailable). Currently, the Polish Armed Forces possess approximately 2800 units of the Honker.
