Sd.Kfz 251 was a German medium-armored half-track armored transport from the Second World War. The first prototypes of the vehicle were created in 1935, and serial production lasted in the period 1939-1945, ending with the production of approx. 14,500 pieces. Sd.Kfz 251 was powered by a Maybach HL 42 TURKM six-cylinder engine with 100 hp.
Sd.Kfz 251 was developed as a new, basic half-track transporter of the German armed forces. Its construction was based on a heavy Sd.Kfz.11 tractor, with several elements changed in the adapted chassis: a new fuel tank, the position of the steering wheel and the exhaust system were redesigned. In the course of serial production, four basic versions of Sd.Kfz 251 (Ausf. A, B, C and D) were in fact different in their details due to the production process (especially version C) and a slightly different arrangement of elements inside the hull. During World War II, more than 20 variants and versions of Sd.Kfz 251 were created. The first one was Sd.Kfz 251/1, which was the basic version, armed with two MG34 or MG42 machine guns and capable of transporting up to 10 soldiers of the landing. In 1941, the Sd version was created. Kfz 251/2 armed with a mortar cal. 80 mm.

In 1942, the variant of Sd.Kfz 251/9 Stummel, armed with a short-bore StuK cannon 37 cal. 75 mm, was created. More interesting versions were Sd.Kfz 251/16 with two flamethrowers or Sd.Kfz 251/20 UHU equipped with an infrared emitter and designed to target targets at night.Cars Sd.Kfz 251 all versions were used primarily in armored divisions and panzer grenadiers on virtually all fronts of World War II, from September campaign (1939), the campaign in France (1940), fighting in the Balkans and North Africa (1941-1943) after fighting on the Eastern Front (1941-1945) and the West (1944-1945).
