The German Sd.Kfz 251/2 Ausf D (8cm Granatwerfer) Half Track box contains:

 

 

  • 1 plastic vehicle
  • 2 crew

 

 

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
