^ Sd.Kfz. 113 ?   ;)  Okay, 113 isn't half of either 250 or 251, but it looks like 113 is a somewhat fitting number for it.  :P

Found this on Facebook.

I'm not a treadhead / Sd.Kfz. 251 expert so any comments if this real or fake?

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

They look like the real deal to me, & notice the hand-painted nature of the markings & catalogue number in the bottom right corner of the image.

I'd guess this is a real, period image of a US Army unit with captured German half-tracks (Sd.Kfz. 251/1 Ausf.D, probably).

Interestingly the front fenders have been removed from both of them.

Combining the last few posts, the next logical step would be a Hanomag with a Greyhound turret on it. Yugoslavia maybe?

Here's something I cobbled together recently...

(By the way, I'm posting it in multiple threads since you never know where someone might be looking for inspiration months from now.)

Sd.Kfz. 251 with a AML-90 turret ?

IIRC the IDF used a M-3 Halftrack also with the same low-pressure 90mm gun as used on the AML-90
