Listing Detail Tabs

From the early stages of World War II the German army began to equip their
Panzergrenadiers with armoured half-tracks that would support their panzers in
action. They developed the excellent Sd.Kfz 251 series, made by Hanomag, and
steadily produced them in their thousands, with over twenty versions seeing
service in most theatres of the war.

One of the most useful variants was the 8cm Granatwerfer - a version of
the Hanomag carrying the standard infantry mortar. The mortar could be moved
round the battlefield quickly and in reasonable safety, its armour shrugging off
most infantry weapons and shrapnel. The mortar was most commonly removed from
the half-track to engage the enemy, however in extremis it could fire from the
safely of the vehicle.

A full load of 66 rounds of 81mm mortar rounds were carried, with more
shells available from supply trucks or towed trailers.

This model represents the 251/2 ausf D version of the vehicle (it had a
simplified armour shape from the earlier ausf C, particularly obvious was the
sloped rear Armour) that was in use from 1943 on wards in most theatres. This
variant featured a forward facing 81mm mortar in the rear, tactically spot on
for attacking and moving position frequently.

The models come supplied unpainted and unassembled, contents may vary
from the box image.
