  1. Even the Austrian Army got some leftover High Speed Tractors when the Allied Forces left the country in 1955. See this facebook Video of the Traditionsverband Heereskraftfahrwesen. Here more info provided in english http://www.hkfw.at/en/our-vehicles/80-allis-chalmers-m4-high-speed-tractor-18t-2-en Motorfahrer

  3. To the Austrian connection i can say that it is possible. Austria german helmets were used after the war. The badge reminds me of Austrian Gendarmerie and i can think of that they were used. At least the Voluntary Fire Corps used them well into the eighties. motorfahrer
  4. Just want to say that the Dorotheum auction is probably taking place in Austria! Austrian Army had to reduce its vehicle stock because of cuting the cost of servicing and repairs and Dorotheum bought the Pinzgauers and auctions their stock from time to time. As far as i know it is possible to get green plates at most insurance company offices in Austria for 3 till 23 days but you need an austrian equivalent of MOT and i don't think that the Dorotheum Pinzgauers have this as the Army is MOT exempted. But just ask them. Here is a link to the government site regarding these green plates but only in german. https://www.help.gv.at/Portal.Node/hlpd/public/content/6/Seite.061900.html Motorfahrer

  6. Kettenrad=Chain wheel Kettenkrad as already said is Ketten= Chains and Krad abbreviation of Kraftrad=Motorcycle. a tracked vehicle translates in german as "Kettenfahrzeug" There are some pictures of the On Wheels And Track event on the Facebook page of the HGM. Even some British with bren carrier and a Alvis Stalwart of which the Austrian army had a few. Motorfahrer
  7. Tomorrow and Sunday there is a day with presentations of different military vehicles from collectors. It is called " Auf Räder und Ketten" that translate to "On Wheels and Chains" http://www.hgm.at/de/nc/museum/veranstaltungskalender/detail/show/Event////auf-raedern-und-ketten-2016.html The Austrian Army got many surplus vehicles from the US after US, British, French and Russian Forces left Austria in 1955. Many UNNRA vehicles went to private owners to earn the money and even the fire brigades refurbished 4x4 vehicles for there use. Motorfahrer
