Stukazu Fuss from Tamiya Sdkfz.251/1 Ausf D - Stuka zu Fuss - Tamiya 35151

Stuka zu Fuss
STUKA zu Fuss :

It was shortly after the invasion of Russia in 1941, that the German Wehrmacht began to seriously consider a necessity of increasing firepower in their motorized  infantry formations. By applying some simple modifications to the Sd.Kfz. 251 infantry half-track, they partially fulfilled this requirement. One of these variants was designated the
Sd.Kfz. 251/1 mit Wurfrahmen (the Sd.Kfz. 251/1 with launching frames). It was adapted for siz, externally mounted frames housing short range rockets of 28cm and 32cm in size. The wooden or metal rocket containers were used as shipping crates during transport, and were attached to base plates on the sides of the vehicle for firing. Aiming direction was provided by pointing the vehicle at the target. Two rods were attached on the front of the engine hood, to help the driver align the vehicle on the target. Elevation was adjusted by changing the angle of the container mounting plate. The rockets were fired electrically from inside the vehicle. With an effective range of more than 2000 meters, the rockets provided the German infantrymen with effective fire support against close in area targets. This highly effective half track was affectionately call the STUKA zu FUSS, or Stuka on foot, taken from the German Ju87 series dive bombing aircraft.
