The 251//22

A very good idea, put the best PAK gun you have (the 75mmL46 PAK40) on a 251/1D carrier.
Additional gun carried was an mg 34 or 42, ammoload was 12 rounds.
With its long range the vehicle could engage targets from defensive positions and escape before any allied tanks could get in range.
Production started at the end of 1944.
Main drawback was the recoil of the gun, this could cause mechanical breakdowns on the vehicle.
