1/144 Hanomag SS-100 - by Strategist
The SS-100 was based upon the civilian SS-100 'Gigant' agricultural heavy tractor , for military purposes it was fitted with a larger 4 door cab and a winch was also added to the rear. Around 700 of this type were produced between 1941 and 1945.
Perhaps more widely known for its use by the Wehrmacht in pulling the 'Vidalwagon' & 'Meillerwagen' used to transport V-2 rockets or T-Stoff & B-Stoff fuel trailers. It was however more widely used the Luftwaffe on airfields for pulling larger bombers or the me-323, bomb loads and again fuel trailers such as a the B-Stoff Bowers for the Me-163 Fighter programme.
After the war the SS-100s served on as heaver movers by German 'fairground' companies.
