The 251/10

Armed with a 37mm PAK 36 the first Antitank vehicle for the infantry.
It had a crew of 4 men.
The vehicle had 160 rounds for the gun on board.
This gun was obsolete before the war even started and soon nicknamed, the army doorknocker.
Later in the war an additional round was produced which could penetrate even the T34 armor.
It was a small rocket with a hollow charge which had to be insert in front of the gun, hazardously task.
The upper parts of the original gun shield were often removed as you can clearly see in the pictures.
