1⁄1Steyr RSO with PaK 40
The Raupenschlepper Ost (German: "Caterpillar Tractor East", more commonly abbreviated to 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. This version at the Stammheim Museum is the self-propelled antitank vehicle armed with a PaK 40 gun.
