The Ramcke Fallschirmjager Brigade was originally formed for the invasion of Malta that was cancelled so they were sent to North Africa to reinforce Rommel. During the German retreat at El Alamein the brigade was left behind and some how managed to escape a trap. They headed west and captured a British supply convoy carrying water, fuel, food and cigarettes. After 200 miles they found the rest of the DAK. They fought the final battles of the desert war in Tunisia before surrendering in May 1943.

NSU Sd.Kfz.2 Kettenkrad

Designed as a light tractor for airborne troops, the Kleines Kettenkraftrad or "Kettenkrad" entered production in 1939. The vehicle was essentially a half-track motorcyle with steering accomplished by turning the handlebars which would, in turn, apply braking to the tracks for tight turns. Kettenkrads most frequently served as runway tugs for aircraft and were perhaps most well-known for towing the Me 262 in order to preserve precious fuel that would otherwise be needed for taxiing.
