Very strange Mine-clearing Panzer... anyone know more?

Postby MAX_theHitMan » 23 Apr 2004 23:17

A while back I saw a picture of a hobby-model named "Alkett-Raümgerät Minenraumer" ( Assault Vehicle & Mine Crusher)
and of a "Minenraumpanzer III " ( Mine clearing tank), does anyone of you fine folk outthere have a real photograph of any of these vehicles I have mentioned?
I have searched the web (google/altavista/yahoo) but came up empty, perhaps because this was a prototype vehicle still in trials stage.
Any more information on it would be most valuable.
Many thanks in advance :)

i have posted a picture of a model , so you can get an ideia as to what "strange" vehicle i am trying to get information on.

One is actually preserved in the Russian armour museum at Kubinka, near Moscow:

UAAAHAHAHAHA :lol: Just look at the size of that sucker 8O

Thanks for that fine polaroid cbo 8)

Did this thing ever saw any action? or was it just a prototype, "one-off" invention for clearing Mines?

By the looks of it, it was pretty big. It seems to have a Panzer I turret with double machine gun ports. So I´m guessing it was pretty much well over 2 and a half meters high, maybe 3.

Anyone have anymore info?

Many Thanks Michael Kenny.
Those old polaroids are quite excellente.*two thumbs up

Just look at the tracks on that thing. LOL
It must have weighted well over 80 tons.
I feel sorry for any gophers/rats caught underneath that panzer

My guess is that it is a RAUMER-S , but only a guess. Made by krupp and 130 tons.
