Lauster

 

 

 

 

 

The Stuttgart based engineer and stone quarry owner Lauster developed a vehicle for optimal cross country mobility beginning in 1939. The developments were taken together under the term Wargel (Swabian for roller, roll or drum). The large, drum-shaped wheels were typical for these developments. Besides the drive unit, these wheels also contained room for payload. The driving performance on mud, swamp and sand was impressive. Some of the developments were floatable. The LW 5 was developed as towing vehicle for the trench plough and as recovery vehicle for heavy tanks. One of the 14 LW 7/II ordered by the Luftwaffe was finished at the end of war. The others were in final assembly. Likewise by order of the Luftwaffe, The scrapper LW 7/IIE was developed which should be used for the building of frontline airstrips.
