Sdkfz 251/1 II is an German self-propelled artillery.


The Sdkfz 251/2 is a variant of Sdkfz 251/1 equipped with six 28cm rockets mounted on Wurfgerät 40 wooden frames on the sides, making it a self-propelled rocket artillery. It is also known as "Stuka zu Fuss" and "Wurfrahmen 40". As the rockets are mounted outside, the rear compartment is not affected and can hold passengers for transportation. While the forward firing MG 34 machine gun at the front is retained, the second machine gun at the rear is removed.

The second position controls the elevation and firing control of the rockets. As the rockets cannot traverse sideways, the entire vehicle has to turn to adjust the firing position, which means the driver and the bombardier need to coordinate well, or in the case of a sole crew, switching positions is necessary.

It can be found on maps such as 4106-Battle of Brody.
