NK-101 from Kubinka

Discussions on the vehicles used by the Axis forces.
Long-time forum member Ron Klages (1939 - 2007) generously shared his knowledge and the results of his impressive research with the forum, and this section has therefore been renamed in his honour.

Minenraumer

Postby Brazen » 06 Nov 2005 09:11

That's a Minenraumer, a 38-ton mineclearing vehicle. It was a joint project by Krupp, Daimler-Benz and Alkett, the latter being in charge of final assembly. Very few hard facts are available about it, but it seems to have been a one of a kind and was captured at some point during the war by Russian forces. See this thread:
