Wanted Maus transport vehicle

Post by Salazar » 20 Feb 2005 12:45

Hi.

I read in Batailles and Blindes ( a french Magazine) that a special transport vehicle, with no less than 18 axis was developed for the Maus. Anyone knows of photos or info ?

What type/kind of truck was able to tow this "monster" maus on a transport trailer?

Seems that due to it´s heavy-weight it would be better off transporting it by train to it´s designation.

BTW good picture Desert Foxas. I never seen it before. Only read about it.

Thanks for posting it 8)
