CFS Macro Kettenkrad API MACRO Upgrade CFS Version of a WWII ground vehicle. Upgrade of the early macro of NSU Kettenkrad, now with new corrections, showing the frame and fender on 3D view. The SdKfz 2, better known as the Kleines Kettenkraftrad HK 101 or Kettenkrad for short (Ketten tracks, krad military abbreviation of the German word Kraftrad, the administrative German term for motorcycle), started its life as a light tractor for airborne troops. The vehicle had the advantage of being the only gun tractor small enough to fit inside the hold of the Ju 52. The SdKfz 2 was designed and built by the NSU Motorenwerke AG at Neckarsulm, Germany. First designed and patented in June 1939, it was first used in the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, where they were used to lay communication cab

Late in the war, Kettenkrads were used as runway tugs for aircraft, including jets such as the Me 262. In order to conserve aviation fuel, the aircraft would be towed rather than run the engines while taxiing. The vehicle was also used in the North African theater and on the Western Front. After the war the production went on until 1949 for agricultural use. I have created this api macro with Easy Object Designer (EOD), Version 2. 0. 47 (Matthias Br ckner), to generate a static Kettenkrad, with use of transparent textures, oriented to CFS scenery designers and that they work with Airport 2. 0 or later. All mine API macros, could be included on objects libraries with crash detection (for CFS missions), but must be distributed with the original API-MACRO copyright.
