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 

The 1st Ski Division (1. Skijäger-Division) was an infantry unit of the German Army trained 
to use skis for movement during winter or on high mountain elevations. The unit was 
created in late 1943 on the Eastern Front just before winter began. In the summer of 1944 
the brigade was enlarged to a Division with the inclusion of the 52nd Infantry Division. The 
1st Ski Division fought exclusively on the Eastern Front and had some of the latest 
equipment but it was too late in WWII and they suffered heavy losses.
