Description Extended Information
 
War Master WMTK012 German Sd. Kfz. 165 Hummel Self-Propelled Howitzer - "Clausewitz", Unidentified Unit, Germany, 1944 (1:72 Scale) "If the tank succeeds, then victory follows."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"

To provide armored units with artillery support on an armored fully-tracked chassis, the Waffenamt (Ordnance Department) had proposed that the 10.5cm leFH cannon be mounted on the PzKpfw III and IV chassis. On July 25th, 1942, it was decided to mount the larger 15cm sFH gun on the PzKpfw III and IV chassis, since the PzKpfw II chassis was acceptable as a mount for the leFH cannon. Alkett was entrusted with the development of the vehicle, and subsequently presented a prototype to Hitler in October 1943. The Hummel ("Bumble-Bee") was to be a mere 'Zwischenlosung' (interim solution) until a chassis designed specifically as a self-propelled gun platform could be developed and mass produced. By May 12th 1943, 100 Hummel were to be built for use in the planned summer offensive against the Red Army, code-named Unternehmen Zitadelle (Operation Citadel). Besides the Hummel, 157 Munitions Fahrzeuge (ammunition carriers) were produced to provide ammunition for the Hummel batteries.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale diecast replica of a German Sd. Kfz. 165 Hummel self-propelled howitzer that was nicknamed "Clausewitz". Sold Out!

While I am not sold on the sand colour used as a base, this is a terrific looking vehicle. The gun is locked in travelling mode, but the crew compartment is huge and a figure or two would make this "Pop".
