  • I like how the driver and guy on the left are laughing their asses off, while the guy on the right is doing his best to remain dignified.
  • That looks fun as hsit
  • Yeah, I want one. Although there aren't many places where you can have it serviced.. The local Wehrmacht maintenance station was closed by a bunch of Canadians in Brencarriers 70 years ago 🙁
  • I always wondered why they never got to the point of designing the ATV/quad bike back in those days. Instead they were creating things like this tracked bike instead.
  • seriously I mean this probably has better off road capabilities than what they could do with wheels. This thing is super complex I bet
  • that's exactly my thoughts as well. I saw this image posted a few days back showing an exploded drawing of the tracks... http://www.livesteammodels.co.uk/dhmg/images6/11677.jpg ... just look at all those parts for a single link 🙁 They did use a lot of traditional motorcycles back then though, even with a side wagon. So why did they never develop a four wheeled motorcycle like those we have today? It's just odd to think about. It's not like they didn't have innovative thinking back then. lol I mean, just look at that tracked bike in the photo 😀
  • anything the Germans make is going to be complicated, doesn't mean it doesn't work, it's just intricate. If it was Italian it would be twice as complex and only work on tuesdays
  • Why did they ever think they'd work well together in the war?
  • Hitler was a fan of Mussolini, the first Fascist leader in europe to go into power and something of a rolemodel for early Hitler. He even asked for an autographed picture once before he became Chancellor.
  • Makes it extremely difficult to repair though. They only started to make things simpler towards the end of the war, like with the MP40.
  • They only started to make things simpler towards the end of the war, like with the MP40. The mp40 is just a stamped version of the mp38, started in making em in 1940. Not near the end of the war. The mp 3008 on the other hand is a late war german copy of the british STEN.
