15t and 16t Gantry Crane variant used for the TIGER, PANTHER, ELEFANT and V2 rocket units
The road gantry cranes were an indispensable tool for maintaining the new heavy tanks Tiger, Panther, and tank hunter Elephant near to the front line. An exceptional use for the gantry crane was from 1944 onward with the Divison z.V. for loading and unloading of delivered A4 (V2) rockets onto the 'Vidalwagen' or 'Meillerwagen' launching trailers.
