The Faun Kraka is a relatively unknown vehicle which was in use by the German Army from 1974 till the late 1990’s. The vehicle has quite a few special features like a foldable chassis, chain driven rear wheels, low pressure tires and an open building method without body. Although it has all these special features it is fully licensed to be driven op public roads.

The Kraka was characterised by a good air transport ability (release with a parachute and transport as external load were possible) and high robustness. The 1,400 mm x 1,400 mm large loading area was for the admission of different installations prepared. This way the Kraka could be used as a radio vehicle or as a small ambulance. In the role as weapon carrier the Kraka was equipped with the MK 20mm, the PzAbw recoilless rifle 106 mm, a 120 mm mortar launcher or the PzAbw system Milan and TOW. For the supply of the mortar troops there was an ammunition transport vehicle, which could transport 34 mortars. The Kraka was high 1,190 mm (measured at steering wheel), had an unfolded length of 2,780 mm and width of 1,510 mm. With the vehicle folded the length was reduced to 1,850 mm.
