Produktbeschreibung

SdKfz 3a Maultier 2-ton Half-Track Cargo Truck
(280046)

When the Germans ran into the spring thaw on the Eastern Front they desperately needed more mobile vehicles to provide men and materiel to forward units.  One solution was to take reliable wheeled vehicles and modify them to use a tracked drive system.

The SdKfz 3 Maultier (“Mule”) is the name given to series of half-track trucks used by Germans during WW2.  They were based on Opel, Mercedes-Benz, Alfa-Romeo or Ford trucks.  One of the best known of these conversions was the SdKfz 3a Maultier based on the 3-ton variant of the Opel Blitz cargo truck.

During the beginning of 1941 German troops discovered that their wheeled transport vehicles were unsuitable for the muddy rasputitsa conditions at the beginning of the invasion of Russia.  Only halftracks were able to operate in these conditions, but removing them from their combat role for supply duties was not feasible, so it was decided to produce half-tracked versions of standard Opel, Daimler-Benz, Alfa-Romeo and Ford trucks (lorries) by removing their rear axles, truncating the prop shafts and connecting them to redundant Panzer I track assemblies.  Heavier trucks (4 tons payload) were fitted with Panzer II track assemblies.

Most Maultier conversions were based on Opel Blitz model S trucks, which proved successful in service.  While lacking the overall mobility of purpose-built halftracks they were cheaper and sufficiently effective.  From 1943, some Maultier trucks were fitted with armored bodies, designated SdKfz 4.   Some of these were armed with 10 tubed rocket launcher Panzerwerfer 42, and were designated SdKfz 4/1.

One of the variants of the SdKfz 305 Opel Blitz and the SdKfz 3a Maultier was the box body (Einheitskoffer).  The design of the Einheitskoffer was identical for all trucks in terms of dimensions, position and number of windows, doors and stowage boxes, and was made of plywood and hard-fibre panels.  This design approach offered a wide variety of potential usage.

German Motorcycle R75 with Sidecar (ETO)
(280051)


In the 1930s, BMW were producing a number of popular and highly effective motorcycles.  In 1938 development of the R75 started in response to a request from the German Army.  Preproduction models of the R75 were powered by a 750cc side valve engine, which was based on the R71 engine.  However it was quickly found necessary to design an all-new OHV 750cc engine for the R75 unit.
