Item DescriptionThis German World War 2 era vehicle started life in response to the need for an off-road tractor and supply vehicle built for the mud and poor roads of the Eastern (Ost) Front. Radschlepper Ost (RSO for short) translates to "wheeled tractor East" The vehicle was designed by the famous Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, and is not one of his best accomplishments.
The vehicle was initially rejected though Hitler is reported to have ordered 200 built anyway. Production ceased at 100 though and few or none served on the Ost front. The all-steel wheels would have made for a very uncomfortable ride and it performed poorly on icy roads.
