    Heres a little info,

    First built in 1938, they were intended to be used as tugs for the invasion of Britain in 1940, having a crew of 3, they could carry 20 soldiers.
    they were 8.60M long and had a road speed of 40Km/H (24.85 Mph) and a water speed of 12.5 Km/H (7.8 Mph) and a range of 240km (149 Miles). they were intended to transport German Halftracks (SdKfz 251) in large trailers (as in photo) and the crew in the tug itself. however, the project never took off and was abandoned in 1941-42.
