Ladungsträger auf VA 601(b)

The Panzer Tracts[/i] publication mentioned in the sources (see below) mentions a modification of the Belgian Vickers Utility Tractor[/i] artillery tractors used by the German Army under the designation VA 601(b)[/i], where these machines were supposed to carry a 650 kg (?) load. It was operated by remote control. The control was by means of a 1200 m long cable. At least 30 units (probably joint numbers with a similar demolition vehicle Ladungsträger auf Fahrgestell Bren(e)) of these demolition vehicles were to be deployed in 6/1942 in the Crimea [/i]as part of the 3. Kompanie/Panzer Abteilung 300 (F.L.)[/i] during the siege of Sevastopol[/i].
