Halfi-track Sd.Kfz. 251/1 Hanomag, the most used armored transport by the Germans during the WWII in Ausf. C model. The vehicle, called “Mittlere Schützenpanzerwagen”, was prepared to transport a mechanized infantry squadron, the famous panzergrenadiers , with all their equipment. It was armed with two MG-34 and later MG-42 machine guns, one with an armored shield for frontal fire and the other in a rear crane that allowed antiaircraft fire. The Ausf. C, which began to be manufactured in 1942, had a complex armor that made it quite difficult to manufacture and in 1943 it began to be replaced by the Ausf. D, which was much easier to produce. Even so, the Ausf. C was operational until the end of the war. Some 15,250 vehicles of the four existing models and their 22 variants were produced.
