Krupp RaŸmer S

In 1944, Krupp built a prototype of this super heavy mineclearing vehicle.
The 130t vehicle was articulated in the centre, and was suspended on 2.7m diameter steel wheels.
These were set on different track widths at front and rear, so as to sweep a wider path.
Each section of the Raumer S was powered by a Maybach HL90 motor.
It was captured at end of the war by the U.S Army.
