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.
