Default Ruins found in forest in Norway

A colleague of mine sent me these photos. He found these ruins of a vehicle (?) in a forest near Troms°, Norway. He was told by some local people that thing was used during WW2 by the Germans, but they did not know what it was.

The total lengt of the thing is 3,5 meters and the width is 1,7 meters.

Can anyone identify this object/vehicle?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english.

Hi!

Thank you for your reply. I have now compared photos that I found online of the Heeresfeldwagen Hf7 with the photos that my colleague sent me, and I think that you certainly are correct!

Thank you very much for your help

That is really interesting Simon! I will give my colleague a tip about that.

The photos that I posted was taken near Fagernes krysset in Ramfjord utside Troms°.
