Sd.Kfz.251/1Ausf.D

From early 1943, the D model was developed with the purpose of halving the number of angled body plates, simplifying the design and thus speeding up the production. D models can be easily recognized by their single piece sloping rear (with flat doors).

The standard personnel carrier version was equipped with a 7.92 mm MG34 or MG 42 machine gun mounted at the front of the open compartment, above and behind the driver. A second machine gun could be mounted at the rear on an anti-aircraft mount.

Variants were produced for specialized purposes, including with anti-aircraft guns, light howitzers, anti-tank guns and mortars or even large unguided artillery rockets, as well as a version with an infrared search light used to spot potential targets for associated Panther tanks equipped with infrared detectors.

  1. WELL DESIGNED 251D

    Posted by James Maupin on Jul 30th 2018

    I very much apprieciate the excellent hole pattern alignment as I also work in mechanical design with sheet metal for the Govt. Also, the detail of the resin parts for the interior of the halftrack are well made. Thanks again for another fun project.
