COBI SD KFZ 251/9 Stummel History:
The SD Kfz Stummel (“stump”) was an armored reconnaissance vehicle developed and used by the German Army in World War II. It was based on the same chassis as the standard Sd.Kfz. 251 half-track, but had a new type of drive mechanism that allowed it to turn on its own axis without needing to make any wider turns. The Stummel has since become something of a cult classic among military collectors, due to its unique design and storied service history in some of the most famous battles of World War II.
Originally designed for reconnaissance duties, the SD Kfz Stummel featured several key modifications from its predecessor. It had a longer wheelbase than other half-tracks, as well as wider treads for improved traction. Both features enabled it to traverse tough terrain more easily and make better use of limited space. Finally, it had a pivoting drive system which allowed it to turn 360 degrees simply by driving forward or backward in one direction with minor adjustments from the steering wheel or brakes. Its weight was heavier than other vehicles at 10 tons unloaded and 12 tons when loaded up with crew and equipment, leading to somewhat slower speeds on difficult terrain compared to lighter vehicles such as jeeps or tanks.
The SD Kfz also featured slightly different armaments than earlier vehicles in this range such as the more powerful but heavier SdKfz 123 variant artillery halftrack series; instead it was outfitted with a 75 mm L/24 low velocity gun, using the same pedestal gun mount employed on the StuG III. Nicknamed “Stummel” (“stump”). In 1944, a revised modular gun mount was introduced to facilitate production that also incorporated a coaxial MG42.
