General Information
The SdKfz 251 series of vehicles were the first purpose built Armoured personel carriers. The vehicles could carry 10 panzer grenadiers in a small arms and shrapnel protected space. The 251/1 Ausf A,B and C had angular armour, with the prime contractor being Hanomag. The vehicle had two steering front wheels and two rear tracked assemblies which provided a reasonable cross country speed of 13mph.


The 251/5 known as the Schützenpanzerwagen für Pionierzug was used to carry Pioneer units into battle and carried the 10 troops plus inflatable boats and other smaller equipment, it may have one or two MG34 machine guns mounted to the front and rear of the vehicle for local protection.

Hit Probability(%)

Hit probability is based on a static 2 x 2.4 metre panel at 0 degrees(vertical) at the range specified.

The data that has been used to create these records has come from Wikipedia, The Lone Sentry, The Bundes Archive and numerous books and websites that have provided the detailed information that has not been available anywhere else. The information we use to calculate the penetration tables, flight times and the hit probability comes from the Gun Calibre, the Shell Mass(Kg) and the muzzle velocity, plus range reductions to allow for gravity and wind resistance. This calculation originally came from a pre-war Krupp calculation which has been modified, and seems to fit the actual test results.
