About Luftwaffe Winter Uniform|
German troops were exposed to serious winter conditions as their 1941 invasion of the Soviet Union dragged on, and naturally Luftwaffe pilots and crew had winter gear to combat the cold. Many pilots wore a leather jacket with fur collar; sentries, who would spend long stretches in the elements, were issued with heavy overcoats and thick leather and felt boots.
About the Kettenkraftrad|
The trusty Kettenkraftrad half-track was a ubiquitous sight around German WWII troops, combining two tracks with the front wheel and steering mechanism of a motorcycle for superb off-road ability. Power was provided by a 36hp 1,478cc 4-cylinder engine that could propel the half-track at speeds of up to 70km/h, and allowed towing of loads up to 4.5 tons. The Luftwaffe used it to haul aircraft and shells, among other jobs.
