Description Extended Information
 
The Motor Pool TMP2055 German Sd. Kfz. 251/1 Ausf. D Half-Track in Eastern Front Summer Camouflage (1:35 Scale) "We must do everything we can to promote anti-tank defense, and work just as hard to guarantee successful counter-attacks through the instrument of powerful tank forces of our own."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"

The Sonderkraftfahrzeug (Sd. Kfz.) 251 half-track had its origins in the same requirement as the smaller and lighter Sd. Kfz. 250. It entered service in 1939, intended as an armored personnel carrier, which quickly became the standard means of transport for the panzergrenadiers. As it turned out, the Sd. Kfz. 251 was an especially useful vehicle, capable of keeping up with the newly formed panzer divisions and then some. All told, there were 22 special-purpose variants built, including the Stukavoss ("infantry Stuka") rocket launcher, flame-thrower, anti-tank, communications vehicle, observation post, ambulance, and infra-red searchlight carrier. Early reliability problems did not prevent the vehicle from being produced by the thousands. Nevertheless, the Sd. Kfz. 251 was a sturdy vehicle used on all fronts, eventually becoming a trademark of the German panzertruppe.

This particular vehicle has been painted in a scintillating eastern front summer camouflage pattern. Sold Out!
