The Kettenkrad was a German gun tractor used in World War II that combined a small tractor with the front end of a motorcycle. The Kettenkrad was adapted from from a pre-war civilian tractor design, intended to be a prime mover for field weapons, yet small enough to be transported by a Ju52 transport plane. The Kettenkrad was used primarily on the Soviet front to tow small artillery pieces, lay communications wire, or transport troops over the muddy terrain. Later in the war they were used to tow fighter aircraft such as the Me262 to the runway in order to conserve precious jet fuel.
