WWII German SdKfz 250/3 Greif Halftrack W/ Rommel figures model kit 1/35Tamiya
A light armoured personnel carrier was developed by putting armour on the 1-ton half-track and the official name of this vehicle was Sd.kfz 250. The front armour was 14.5mm thick and the side armour was 8mm thick. It had one pair of track rollers less than the original vehicle as the first torsion bar shaft had been removed to reduce the vehicles weight. The Sd.Kfz 250 was remodelled into various vehicles. The most famous half-track of them all was the Sd.Kfz 250/3 Greif which was used by General Rommel in North Africa and was used in the battle of Tobruk in June 1942. The word "Greif", in English "Griffin" was painted on its sides to represent the winged animal of Greek mythology.
Kit includes 4 Rommel crew figures
