Special variants of the Sd. Kfz. 251






A standard design platform over the driver’s compartment was retrofitted to an unknown number of Sd. Kfz. 251 Ausf. A. Such modified vehicles were assigned to platoon leaders and also higher commanders. The front section of this special superstructure was cut out on the shown vehicle so the retrofitted MG with armoured shield could be used without limitation. The vehicle looked quite used due to the hard fighting. The photo was made in Russia in winter 1941/42.
