Item DescriptionThe Heuschrecke 10 (German: Grasshopper 10) was a prototype self-propelled gun and Waffentrager (German: "Weapon carrier") developed by Krupp-Gruson between 1943 and 1944. The official designation of the vehicle was 105 mm leichte Feldhaubitze 18/1 L/28 auf Waffentrager Geschutzwagen IVb and was to be built in Magdeburg, Germany. The Heuschrecke featured a removable turret which could be deployed as a pillbox or towed behind the vehicle as an artillery piece.
Krupp produced only three prototypes from 1942–1943. The Heuschrecke initially made use of a shortened Panzerkampfwagen IV (Panzer IV) chassis, but it was later switched to the Geschutzwagen IV chassis, developed for the Hummel self propelled gun. Mass production of the Heuschrecke 10 was scheduled to start in February 1945, but never eventuated.
