Hello together, my englisch is rather poor, so please excuse mistakes.
Nevertheless I found some Data to the "Panzerkleinzerstörer Rutscher"

Fighting Weight: 3500kg Payload: 500kg.
Lengh: 3,55 m (wo. Gun) and 4,85 m (with Gun)
Width: 1,85 m (Width of chain 240mm)
Height: 1,36m(over all)

2 x Panzerwurfkanone PWK 8H63

90hp 3,5 Ltr. 6zyl.-Engine (by BMW?)60-70km/h
Voith-Hydraulic variable transmission
Crew: 2
Armour: 14,5-8mm
Manufactor Weserhütte Bad Oeynhausen (only wooden 1x1 Model was finished)

annotation:
The sides wer inclined inwards! (like the hulls of the PzSpW)
For this reason the sketch above shows a to big width compared to the hight.
There was also an amo-carrier

Lengh: 3,55 m
Width: 1,85 m

to there was a second (proto-)type by BMW data not aviable to me.

Hi everybody
I have got some more information about the rutscher.
The sketch above clearly shows the BMW model.
Its engine was the BMW Type 335 4 cylinder with 3485 ccm (82mm stroke and 110mm diameter)
it had 90 horsepowers at 3500 rounds per minute.
BMW suggestet an electrical gearbox type 6EV20, but was ordered to use the mechanikal ZF 5 - 25 "Allklauen" gearbox.
Acording to Spielberger there have been about 20 different designs, for example also from Büssing and Daimler-Benz (but both of then were to heavy).
The Weserhütte design was suposed to use an aircooled 4cyl. engine from Tatra.

oh, I forgott the arnament was different from one design to the other!
So there were designs with only one Panzerwurfkanone PWK 8H63 and one used the 8,8-cm Raketenwerfer 43 "Puppchen".

sorry I made a mistake above!
The BMW-engine had 6 cylinders of course - the Tatra engine had 4.

It makes me think of the Swedish Strv 103C.
