DER STRABOKRAN: GERMAN GANTRY CRANE 1942-45

by Volker Ruff





Road gantry cranes were indispensable for maintaining Tiger and Panther heavy tanks and Elefant tank hunter near the front line. An exceptional use for the gantry crane was from 1944 onward with the Division z.V. for loading and unloading of delivered A4 (V2) rockets onto ‘Vidalwagen’ and ‘Meillerwagen’ launch trailers. This book documents the crane’s development history and includes patent applications, descriptions of its use in action with the Panzer-Werkstattkompanien, engineering units and Division z.V. With drawings and close-up pictures, including photos showing the removal and replacement of a Panzer turret, plus a comparison of 15t and 16t Strabokran. Also included for modellers a detailed set of drawings of all variants in 1/35 scale.
