Hi Bert,

Th NKL-6S, the ambulance version, was almost identical to NKL-16-37, according to the mentioned book.

Was Henschel the manufacturer of the German aerosled? Which is the source ?

Hi Sturm 78,

thank You very much for the reply.
To Your question: I only have the information that Henschel produced the smaller aerosled like on the pic below.

Best regards

Bert

Thanks, Bert. What is your source ?
In the book "Aerosan. Soviet Aero-sleighs of WW2" is mentionated that there are no any information about these German snow vehicles....

Hi Sturm 78,

there are two Russian sources:
the first https://wwii.space/aerosani-germaniya/
with the following text:
Аэросани Макс Хеншель
Фирмой Хеншель на базе советских «НКЛ-16/37» и с использованием трофейного двигателя «М-11» были созданы аэросани «Макс Хеншель». Принципиальные узлы (подвеска задних лыж, конструкция лыж, тормоз) были скопированы с советских саней. Похожей была и форма кузова. Всего было выпущено несколько десятков саней. ТТХ саней: боевой вес – 1350 кг; двигатель – авиационный, бензиновый М-11Г; мощность двигателя – 110 л.с.; винт – двухлопастный, деревянный; диаметр винта – 2,4 м; вооружение – пулемет 7,62 мм; боекомплект – 1500 патронов; максимальная скорость – 50 км/с; емкость бензобака – 140 л; запас хода – 120 — 160 км; экипаж – 2 человека.

the second: http://ser-sarajkin.narod2.ru/ALL_OUT/T ... L-6010.htm
with the table above and the pic of this aero-sleigh on the exhibition of captured technology in Moscow (Аэросани «Макс Хеншель» на выставке трофейной техники в Москве).

Best regards

Thank you for the links and the info, Bert.

It is possible that you are right but I am not sure that the name "Max Henschel" means that these vehicles were manufactured by the Henschel company....

Hi Sturm 78,

thank You for Your reply. I translated the following sentence "Фирмой Хеншель на базе советских «НКЛ-16/37» и с использованием трофейного двигателя «М-11» были созданы аэросани «Макс Хеншель» and so I believe that the Henschel company produced these aero-sleighs. Here the translation: the aero-sleigh "Max Henschel" was created by the company Henschel on the base of the Soviet "NKL-16-37" and using the captured engine "M-11".

Best regards

Bert

Hi all,

Two images from Ebay. NKL-6S or NKL-16-37 Soviet aerosled (or his Finnish copy MR-42S)
