Tatras at Militracks

Militracks in Overloon, NL showed tracked and half tracked German WWII vehicles as well as WWII cars and motorcycles. Your editor Kees Smit showed his 1943 T 57K while a Norwegian collector showed his extremely rare 1939 T 92, a 6×4 light truck originally built for the Czechoslovak forces, but eventually used by the Germans to invade Scandinavia. We had a ride with this truck! Apart from these vehicles, the Overloon war museum showed their Schwere Wehrmachtschlepper built by Ringhoffer/ Kolin in the war years while some Tatra’s OT 810 converted back to SdKfz 251 also were present.

The Wehrmacht driving manual already mentioned that the T 57K wasn’t an off-road vehicle. Here the T 57K got stuck with its differential in the mud, the course having seen many tracked vehicles.

But there were even more Tatra-related vehicles (here a 2014 video): Riding with Vladimir Lehars’ in his SdKfz 9 Famo with Tatra diesel power at Miltracks 2014 Overloon. Full circuit of the course. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmeMHCJJVBw
