Raupenschlepper Ost
   Raupenschlepper Ost or simply RSO, was a fully tracked, lightweight vehicle used by the Wehrmacht in World War II. It was conceived in response to the poor performance of wheeled and half-tracked vehicles in the mud and snow during the Wehrmacht's first autumn and winter on the Soviet Front Initially it was designed as a prime mover and artillery supply vehicle. The engine was an air-cooled Steyr V8 3.5l / 8-cylinder Petrol/ 85 PS. I've built that model in 1986 and restored them now, adding petrol drums and other parts ... also a little bit color work. The last four pics are then an now photographs
