The blitzkrieg tactics of the German Army prior at the start of World War II meant that Germany needed a dedicated fighting vehicle to transport troops around the battlefield in support of the panzer spearheads. It was in response to this new requirement that the German armored halftrack was developed during the 1930s. The SdKfz 251 halftrack became one of the most numerous vehicles in German service during World War II with over 15,000 produced. This book provides detailed instructions on how to build some of the most popular SdKfz 251 variants in all scales. It also includes information on camouflage paint schemes and markings.
