RSO 01 Tractor
9/11/2012. Donington - Derbyshire - UK
Raupenschlepper Ost (Caterpillar Tractor East) not suprisingly known as RSO was developed by Steyr in response to requests from the first winter the Wermacht spent on the Soviet front.
It is a fully tracked vehicle based on Steyr's 1.5 tonne truck.
Such was it's popularity other manufacturers had to be introduced.
