1 Kwk 37 L/24 (75mm)
2 MG 34 (o MG 42) 7.92mm
Range: 300 Km on road 150 Km off road.
Sd. Kfz. 251 are one of my favourite wwII vehicles, i like their silhouette and the concept of mechanized infantry which come with them.
Manufactured in many different versions never were available in enough quantity to equip all divisions, but they perform an important role during the war.
9 Version, with the short 75mm gun, is one of the most beautiful.
Altaya’s model present a good quality according to his price, the worst, probably the basic detail in the gun itself, but no any other great faults. This model is a good addition to the collection, which present another 251 in previous issues.
