Beute... Schlepper

Post by Mannet » 23 Jul 2021 07:13

hi,

I've seen model of t-18/MS 1 converted into artillery tractor- was this vehicle real? are there any photos of it?

second question - I know, that Wehrmacht and finnish army used t-20s as artillery tractors, but did Axis forces used captured zis-30 self propelled guns? (mounted on t-20 tankette/tractor) ?

Hi Mannet
I haven't seen a picture of a T18 converted to a tractor. But anything is possible.
As the use of captured Zis-30 is concerned I could not find anything on Beutepanzer.ru.
I found a picture which might show a Zis 30 in German use though. But it could also be
just an abandoned vehicle. What do you think?

Regards
Armin

Hi Mannet,

to Your second question. There was a German field modification of the T 20 with a 37mm AT gun. Here a pic and a drawing of this vehicle (source: "Beute-Kraftfahrzeuge und -Panzer der deutschen Wehmacht" by Walter J. Spielberger.

Regards

Bert

The vehicle in the top picture is a SU 57 on the Komsomlets tractor. It was converted in small numbers.

It mounts the ZIS 30 57mm antitank gun.
