Good things come to those, who wait! We have an update!

I've got many questions relating the chassis numbers and the data plates of the Kettenkrads. So I made up my mind to write a description of the pattern of the Kettenkrads chassis numbers and the different data plates. Hope this makes things a little bit more clear.

On the new page I describe the pattern of the Kettenkrads chassis numbers from wartime and post war production and I show the matching data plates.


The Kettenkrad as cable laying vehicle

Kleines Kettenkrad für Feldfernkabel Sd.Kfz. 2/1

There were two official variants of the Kettenkrad Sd.Kfz.2: The "Kleine Kettenkrad für Feldfernkabel Sd.Kfz. 2/1" (for long distance field cable, see picture above) and the Kleine Kettenkrad für schweres Feldkabel Sd.Kfz. 2/2. (for heavy standard field cable)

On this new page you can read more about these variants.

Pictures are good, motion pictures are are better. We want to see the Kettenkrad in full motion. On Youtube there are a lot of videoclips, showing Kettenkrads. Some are really good, some not. The best you can find on my new video link list:
