Description Extended Information
 
21st Century Toys 21C10108S1 German Wurfkorper M F1 50 Stuka zu Fuss Half-Track with Rocket Launchers (1:18 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. Intended as an armored personnel carrier, the Sd. Kfz. 251 entered service in 1939, and quickly became the standard means of transport for the panzergrenadiers. As it turned out, the Sd. Kfz. 251 was an especially useful vehicle, not only capable of keeping up with the newly formed panzer divisions but also providing invaluable support as well. All told, there were 22 special-purpose variants built, including the menacing-looking Stukavoss ("infantry Stuka"), which mounted a series of rocket launchers on the outer sides of the vehicle. Other variants included a flame-thrower, anti-tank, and communications vehicle, as well as an observation post, ambulance, and infra-red searchlight carrier. Despite suffering from early reliability problems, the Sd. Kfz. 251 was produced by the thousands, eventually becoming a trademark of the German panzertruppe on all fronts.

After the campaign in France in 1940, J. Gast KG. Berlin were ordered to develop a projector for the Wurfgerat 40, which would be fitted on the Mittlere Schutzenpanzerwagen. The resulting Stuka zu Fuss ("Stuka on foot") could be traversed by the driver and used against enemy troop or armored formations some distance away. Each projector frame could be elevated anywhere from +5 degrees to +40 degrees. Firing took 10 seconds and gave the 3rd Panzerpionier Zug heavy bombardment capability up to 1.9km for Sprengragate and 2.2km for Flammgranate.
