Sd Kfz 251 Ausf C/10

Hanomag Personnel Carrier
This model comes as one part plus the gun. 

The Sdkfz 251 was the Hanomag halftrack armoured personnel carrier which served in all theatres throughout the war. The 251 came in at least 22 different configurations with four variants, Ausf(uhrung) A, B, C, & D for different roles and the one on offer here is the Ausf D/1 Armoured Personnel Carrier version with a fitted cover.

The 251 was designed to carry 10 mechanised troops into battle. Some 15,250 251s were produced during the course of the war. Although referred to as the 'Hanomag' which was the company who designed the model, they were made by several companies including Hanomag, Horch, Adlerwerke and Skoda.

Weighing some 7.8 tonnes it was capable of a speed of 32mph.

This model is quipped with a 37 mm Pak 36 anti-tank gun mount. Issued to platoon leaders as a fire support vehicle. Early versions used the whole top half of a Pak 36 with full gunshield, but later ausf. C & D used a much smaller half-size gunshield so that the vehicle didn't advertise its firepower, so it looked more like a regular 251/1.
