Schwerer Wehrmachtschlepper

The tractors built at Büssing-NAG and Tatra were intended to be technically simplified and more affordable alternatives to the 3-ton and 5-ton Zugmaschines. Unlike these Zugmaschines, the sWS (schwere Wehrmachtschlepper) had no lubricated tracks with rubber padding, but rather dry steel chain links. Most sWS were unarmoured, like this recently perfecty restored vehicle which will make its first public appearance at Militracks this year.
