Kfz-Aufsetzkran 3t






The Kfz-Aufsetzkran 3t - motor vehicle attachment crane 3 tons - belonged to the ground equipment of the Luftwaffe. It could be attached to the platform of different lorries of the 3 ton class. In the upper and middle photo, one can see the crane in driving position while the crane can be seen in working position in the lowest photo.









It seems that as chassis most often the Opel Blitz 3,6-36 S was used. Observe the delicate construction of the cran which can be seen also in this photo.
