Panzermuseum munster, Stoffel, next in line stands the engineer version

The first variant of the 251 with a true firesupportrole.
Build in 1942 and equiped to the armored recon units of the Panzer and panzergrenadierdivisions, it saw most action on the Russian front.
The vehicle carried the 75mmL24 gun which had low velocity, ammo storage was 52 rounds.
But in many cases the crews  filled up every inch of spae they had with additional rounds.
The vehicle was also armed with an additional mg 42 and carried equipment for artillery observers in its hull.
