The Sd.Kfz. 2 designation was for the Kettenkrad. Ketten means tracks and krad is the 
military abbreviation of Kraftrad, administrative term for motorcycle. Originally intended for 
use by German airborne troops it was designed to fit inside the JU-52 aircraft. With its 
amazing ability to tow 4 tons the vehicle soon was used to tow light artillery and trailers as 
well as aircraft to save aviation fuel. One variant was specifically used for laying 
communication cables. The vehicle was turned using handlebars or in tandem with track 
brakes.

This Sd. Kfz. 2 Kettenkrad belonged to the 1st Gebirgs Division (1st Mountain Division), an 
elite unit mostly comprised of Bavarians and some Austrians. The Division took part in the 
invasion of Yugoslavia and then entered the Soviet Union and became part of Operation 
Barbarossa. They also took part in the Second Battle of Kharkov and proceeded through 
the Southern Soviet Union and into the Caucasus area as part of Operation Edelweiss. In 
1945 what was left of the division surrendered to the Americans in Austria.
