251 Series of Half-tracks

The 251 series of half-tracks were used in a variety of roles.

The 251/1 SPW (mittlere Schützenpanzerwagen) or rifleman’s medium armoured vehicle was designed to transport gepanzerte (armoured) panzergrenadiers into battle.

The 251/1 increases the panzergrenadier’s movement speed and improves Reaction Dice from 3D to 4D. These improvements are included in the unit statistics.
