The Karosa ŠM11 ("Š"koda "M"ěstský - Škoda City) (Pronounced: Esh Em 11) - also known as the "OFP bus" by members of the BIS community is a city bus which was produced by the Czechoslovak national company Karosa in Vysoké Mýto from 1961 to 1981. It is the successor to the Škoda 706 RTO bus.
The Karosa ŠM11 greatly differs from its predecessor, the Škoda 706 mainly because it was the first model to have its own specially designed and manufactured under carriage and chassis (previous models used a truck chassis), as well as an under floor Škoda-LIAZ ML634 engine capable of producing 207hp as well as air suspension. The bus also features a Praga 2M 70 two stage, automatic transmission.
Amongst other improvements, the ŠM11 also features three wider folding doors, a lower floor and extra windows which give the interior a much lighter and bigger feel.
The Š11 model family, of which the ŠM11 is a part of also includes the ŠL11 ("Š"koda "L"inkový - Škoda Liner) and the ŠD11 ("Š"koda "D"álkový - Škoda Distance) which mainly differs by having a single hand operated door in the front and a blue paint job, unlike the red paint job characteristic to the ŠM11.
The ŠM11 chassis was later used for the Škoda T11 trolleybus project (which was scrapped, with only 8 vehicles ever produced) with a few slight visual modifications. The ŠM11 chassis was also used in the ŠM16.5 project which was the first harmonica style bus in the Eastern bloc with an extended rear section attached with a joint. The ŠM16.5 project was way ahead of its time and due to a lack of interest and trust from city transport companies the project was scrapped and later controversially replaced with the Hungarian Ikarus harmonica bus.
