Tankgrad No. 1014, German Wheeled Artillery Tractors
Permalink   


Today I received the upcoming Tankograd booklet «Artillerie Zugmaschinen». A great big thank to Mr. Vollert, the man behind Tankograd!

Having turned the pages straight away, showed me quickly what great publication I'd been able to get my hands on. German wheeled artillery tractors, a subject that has hardly been explored in the past, is presented in a profound and simply great way! Most of the sensational photographs I had never seen before. The book covers tractors from more known manufacturers like Büssing (my personal favourite), Dürkopp, Lanz, Podeus, Pöhl, Daimler, Benz, Horch, to not very well known manufacturers such as Arator, Kaelble, Sendling, Hanomag etc.
On a topic, where even so-called experts reach their limits and where so much untruth can be read on the web, this publication bridges a significant gap!
As you may notice, I am absolutely blown away by the wealth of information and all those wonderful photographs. So I can highly recommend it, it’s worth every penny (or Euro in this case)!

Cheers,
Peter

The series is outstanding, and I am pleased to know that this is another worthwhile addition.

Hi!
If I'm not mistaken Tankograd Publishing has published books on almost all types of German equipment of the First World War: tanks, armored cars,tractors, trucks, motorcycles.
It seems there are only truck-mounted FLAK.
Is there a book planned based on them?
Best regards!

I have 1014 on order, and 1015 will be ordered as soon as it becomes available. 🙂

 Hi!

If it is not a secret, please tell me the book will contain only photographs or also drawings?

Best regards!

Line drawings in scale are a major issue when it comes to German WW1 vehicles. Most I have seen show prototypes or are modern adaptations from period photographs. However, only original factory drawings would do to be on the safe side, and these are in almost all cases long gone. My pre-research in documents and photos for 1015 K-Flak is complete so far, but I have not written the text yet. There is a massive other book project (non-WW1) that I need to finish before 1015 can be started. Any input on the topic is most welcome up till then.

 It’s going to be great, I’m sure! Jochen, when (which month) do you think this book will be published?
