The FAUN ZR wheeled tractor was an impressive vehicle. As a comparison, have a look at the size of the standing soldier in front of the vehicle. This type had a cable winch as serial equipment. The vehicles belonged to an unidentified unit of the Luftwaffe.

The FAUN ZRS wheeled tractor, which was manufactured beginning in 1941, was also able to drive on rails so it could be used as auxiliary locomotive. The rail wheels were stored in the rear box while driving on roads. Normally, ballast were stored there to increase the towing capacity. Vehicles, which were propelled by a wood gas device, were designated FAUN ZRG.
