Artillery tractor Ford V8 / DAF Trado 6×4


Dutch DAF Trado 6×4 artillery tractor based on the Ford V8 truck.

The dutch converted commercial Ford and Chevrolet trucks in tractors used for Artillery and Anti Aircraft tractors.
DAF designed a so called TRADO suspension systems which made the trucks much more easy to use in terrain.

The Trado conversion also added a winch which was connected to the towbar and made it rather easy attach the gun to the tractor. As the winch would pull the gun automatically to the truck, this could all be done by 1 person.

After May 1940 many of the Trado trucks have been used by the Germans and thus can also be added to your German war-gaming army.
