Default Names

Yes the generic name for a CMP in Australia is Blitz, or Blitz Buggy, plural is Blitzes.

The 15cwt Sigvans were called butter boxes, a name also applied to the boxy local design gun tractors.

Cab 11/12s (not that we have many of the short wheelbase variety) are generically called Monkey Face or Desert Blitz.
