Sdkfz 251/1 Half Track

When the concept of a fully mobile and tank equipped panzer division was being developed, there was a requirement issued for an armoured infantry carrier capable of accompanying the tanks on the battlefield.
The standard infantry carrier version was the 251/1, which was able to carry up to 12 men in addition to its own crew, it was armed with a single pintle mounted MG34 machine gun and a rear mounted MG34 as an anti-Aircraft machine gun.
The carrier version was adapted to various roles including the addition of Close support weapons such as anti-tank, flamethrowers, anti-Aircraft guns, and even rockets.
Engineering variants was also used.
