Nuts & Bolts Vol.39: Sd.Kfz. 6 – 5 Ton Zugkraftwagen

Release: November, 20th 2017

Dear customers and readers,
we’re glad to announce the latest issue of Nuts & Bolts
Unarmoured halftrack vehicles were typical for the Wehrmacht, as they expressed power, speed and cross-country ability, all necessary requirements for motorised units. As a consequence these halftrack vehicles became almost ubiquitous, and the Heereswaffenamt issued orders to develop vehicles in six different classifications, as early as the Reichswehr period. Dr. Hettler has long researched these types of vehicles, and has already wrote about some in our Nuts & Bolts series: 18 ton ZgKw FAMO, Sd.Kfz. 9 (N&B Vol. 12), 12 ton Zgkw Daimer-Benz Sd.Kfz. 8 (N&B Vol. 16), 3 ton ZgKw Hanomag Sd.Kfz. 10 (N&B Vol. 20), 8 ton ZgKw Krauss-Maffai Sd.Kfz. 7 (N&B Vol. 34).
