This year there was another Militracks event at Oorlogsmuseum Overloon At this event you can see various German vehicles from world war two.

The museum was founded in 1946 on the remainers of the battle of Overloon. After this only tankbattle of the Netherlands, the whole area was ruined and various tanks, vehicles and other equipment were left behind. Among them are a Panther, Churchill and a Nebelwerfer which are at display in the museum. Over the years various collection have been added to the museum. The largest of them is the collection of around two hundred vehicles of the Marshall museum.

Because German world war two era vehicles are pretty rare compared to allied vehicles, Militracks is a unique event. All vehicles are well restored and maintained. Many of them are driver over the sand track of the museum. Still it is hard to keep these old vehicles running. This is proven by the fact that often a few vehicles quit running. This year the unique Hetzer stopped allready before the event, so people could not see it. Also the Käfer had some problems on the second day, but those were fixed soon enough. As usual there were various halftracks to see, ranging from the Sd.fz.10 to the Sd.Kfz.251. This time one of the Sd.Kfz.10 was equipped with a Flak 38. And there was a Sd.Kfz.251/2 with mortar as well. Then there were vehicles like the Kübelewagen, Schwimmwagen, Opel Blitz, Kettenrad and various other motorbikes. Then there were som special guests like the Panzerkampfwagen II Luchs, StuG III Ausf. D and Krupp-Protze L2H43. Below you can view view a limited set of photos. You can see other vehicles which were on display this year in my post about Militracks 2016.
