FFI Sd.Kfz. 251/1 is a French Transport unit added in Back to Hell.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The most widely produced German half-track, Sd. Kfz. 251 was introduced in 1939 and remained in production throughout the war, with at least 15,252 units produced. The popular Hanomag, as it was called by both Allied and Axis soldiers, was distinguished by its heavily angled armored hull and a very large track area with no return rollers, providing good traction and performance. The use of Schachtellaufwerk, overlapping and interleaved road wheels, contributed to it, at the cost of increased maintenance and severe vulnerability to Soviet winters and mud seasons, where they could be frozen solid.

There were many variants produced. 251/1 was the standard personnel carrier, intended to transport an entire panzergrenadier squad (10 men) and provide fire support with its two machine guns (MG-34 or MG-42 7.92mm models).

FFI Sd.Kfz. 251/1 is a captured Sd.Kfz. 251/1. FFI Rallies who were Osttruppen who defected from the German Military to the Free French can be mounted in this vehicle.
