Panzer Tracts No.15-3: m.S.P.W. (Sd.Kfz.251) Ausf.C and D Ausf.C & D. The Panzer Tracts team spent hundreds of hours precisely measuring surviving Ausf.Ds and associated components.
Thousands of hours were spent creating detailed as-built drawings of the Sd.Kfz.251/1, 251/2, 251/7, 251/8, 251/9, 251/10, 251/16, 251/21 and 251/22. To reveal details usually hidden in four-view drawings and photographs, drawings of the weapons (s.M.G., 8 cm Gr.W., 3.7 cm Pak, 7.5 cm K 37, 7.5cm K.51 and 1.5 cm and 2 cm Drilling) and other equipment are printed in the larger 1/20th scale on separate pages.
The book is packed with new information about the history, production, unit organisation, tactics and wartime reports from front-line units. As is the norm for Panzer Tracts, the text and data are wholly based on primary sources. 23 pages of scale drawings and 45 photos illustrate this 80-page book.
