Following on from the Sherman MLR thread Ive done a bit of delving into the photo archives and found this vehicle which I was unfamiliar with and thought I would share.

 

Panzerwerfer 42.

SdKfz 4/1, produced1942-45, 3.6 litre engine, 6 cylinder by Opel. 150mm rockets in a 16 round magazine. Heavily used in the Ardennes offensive. Feel free to add comments/pics.

These 2 seem to be mounted on a different vehicle, any ideas?

Hi,

I am surethat the second picture show the same type of vehicle in use, just the front wheels covered by debris etc.

 

This appears to be a very late picture showing the grey uniform being worn rather than the black Panzer uniform.

 

Also shown is the very rare grey Panzer crash beret being worn i have only seen one in real life :schocked: and most collectors would mortgage their house for one.

Just a pity i had to sell my black one at Beltring last year :cry: :cry:
