NOTICE:
If you don't see the images in some of the older posts means I had used up the 10GB bandwidth for this month. I'm sorry these pictures can no longer be viewed until next month where the counter will be reset to zero and the pictures would then appear again. For the newer posts I am using another account so it is not affected. Enjoy !

Combat Tanks Collection FREE GIFT - Tank Transporter Sd.Ah.116 (Germany) - 1940













The Tiefladeanhänger für Panzerkampfwagen 22/23t Sd. Ah. 116) - flat bed trailer for armored vehicles - which was officially introduced in December 1940. It can handle armoured vehicles up to a weight of 22 tons, later 23 tons.

On the rear carriage there was a cabin for a second driver. Usually, it was towed by a Sd. Kfz. 8 or Sd. Kfz. 9 "FAMO".







As World War II progressed, the vehicles used on the battlefields became larger and larger. When these mammoth machines broke down or became damaged, the task of bringing them back from the front lines was not an easy one. This need was especially felt by the German Wehrmacht, who were fighting on a wide range of battlegrounds.

The German 18 Ton Heavy Half-Track "FAMO" and Tank Transporter Sd.Ah.116 was one of the vehicles that contributed to this task which allowed for the transportation of 22-23 ton class tanks such as the Pz.Kpfw.III, Pz.Kpfw.IV and other heavy artillery.
