In the 1930's several types of half-track prime movers were designed and built for the German Army, generally similar in layout they differed only in size and capacity.The Sd.Kfz 6 was one of medium size with a 5 tonnes tractive force, designed by Bussing-NAG and Mercedes Banz. It was a tractor for medium size artillery pieces such as the 10.5cm howitzer or 8.8cm Flak gun. The body had three rows of bench seats seating up to 10 soldiers and a cargo compartment at the rear. It weighed 9 tonnes, had a speed of 50km/h and a range of 300 km. Power was provided by a 115bhp 6-cylinder Maybach NL54 engine. However the Sd.Kfz.6 was costly to produce and it was superceded by the cheaper and more effective Sd.Kfz.11 and SwS half trscks from 1941, with all production ending in early 1943. Total production of the Sd.Kfz.6 was just 3,660 vehicles.
