FAMO & SD.AH.116 TAMIYA 1:35

GERMAN 18 TON HEAVY HALF TRACK FAMO AND TANK TRANSPORTER SD.AH.116 TAMIYA DESCRIPTION: Sd.Anh.116 is a German 4-axle trailer from the Second World War. The semi-trailer was put into service in the Wehrmacht in December 1940 and remained there until the end of the war. It was 14.4 m long and 3 m wide and could transport vehicles up to 6.5 meters in length, but the construction of the tow truck also allowed longer vehicles to be transported in exceptional situations. Sd.Anh.116 was developed as a heavy trailer, designed for the transportation of armored vehicles (especially tanks) weighing up to 22-23 tons. Subsequently, the permissible limit was increased to 26 tons. The Sd.Anh.116 tow truck was characterized by an unusual design because its transport part was in fact suspended from two trolleys, the second of which was driven by the driver of the same trolley. Loading and unloading was only possible with the rear bogie disconnected. It is worth adding that the half-track Sd. Kfz. 8 or Sd. Kfz. 9. Sd.Kfz. 9 (it. Sonderkraftfahrzeug 9) was a German half-track of the Second World War. The first prototypes were made in 1936 and series production continued in 1939-1945, ending with the production of approximately 2,500 examples of this vehicle. The drive was provided by a single Maybach HL 108TUKRM engine with 270 hp. Sd.Kfz. 7 had no fixed armament as standard. Sd.Kfz. 9 was originally designed by FAMO as a specialized artillery tractor for heavy and heavy artillery regiments. The first production batches of the car were also quite heavy (almost 20 tons!), But they were highly maneuverable, had excellent off-road mobility and had considerable traction. They also proved to be reliable, mechanical and with few failures. In practice, Sd.Kfz. 9 during World War II was mainly used as a towing and rescue vehicle in field repair units. Its task was to recover its damaged or immobilized tanks or self-propelled vehicles from the battlefield. Two versions of the car were made: Sd.Kfz. 9/1 with crane with a capacity of 6 tons and Sd.Kfz. 9/2 with crane with a capacity of 10 tons. Small quantities of Sd.Kfz. 9 served - apart from the German Army - in the Romanian Armed Forces.
