Item DescriptionThe Sd.Kfz.251 German halftrack was an armoured fighting vehicle built by Germany during World War II. The early production models of this vehicle we issued to the 1st Panzer Division in 1939. There were four main models (A - D), with many variations. The initial idea was for a vehicle that could be used to transport a squad of troops to the battlefield protected from enemy fire. The open top meant that the crew was still vulnerable.
The first two models were produced in small numbers. The C variant has a larger production run, but was a quite complex vehicle to build, involving many angled plates that gave reasonable protection from small arms fire. The D variation utilised a much simpler design, and can be easily recognized by its single piece sloping rear (with flat doors).
Although designed for cross country work, the German halftrack had some limitations as the front wheels were not powered.
