Another new Bolt Action vehicle for you and what a beauty it is!
Nicknamed the ‘Stuka zu fuss’ (Walking Stuka) this halftracked vehicle uses the ubiquitous Sd.Kfz 251 to mount up to six wurfrahman 40/41 rockets launch frames. Giving more mobility than the more static Schweres Wurfgeräts and towed Nebelwerfers. The Stuka zu fuss was a welcome support vehicle for the mobile panzer divisions.
Making it’s battlefield debut towards the end of 1940, the Stuka zu fuss consisted of a metal framework with adjustable base plates fitted over and alongside a vehicle. The frames could hold 280mm or 300mm high explosive rockets or, alternatively 320mm incendiary rockets.
Although not as reliable as more conventional artillery pieces, in terms of accuracy, the wurfrahmen proved a very effective weapon and was well thought if by it’s crews and those it supported.
