(Uhu) (Sd.Kfz.251/20), Artillerie Beobachtungs Wagen (Sd.Kfz.251) and m.S.P.W.(7,5cm)(Sd.Kfz.251) AK7B84. The first part of this Panzer Tracts covers the ongoing development of the semi-track mittlerer Schützenpanzerwagen with the objective of turning it in to a suitable combat vehicle. By November 1941 a specification was issued for a fully tracked M.S.P. (Mittlerer Schützen Panzerwagen) to replace the Sd.Kfz.251 and designated “Kätzchen” (meaning Kitten).
The result was a highly effective fully-tracked carrier but from the large number of original documents that we found we gain a unique insight not only into the design and development of the Kätzchen but the trials and tribulations of developing a new armoured vehicle in the rapidly deteriorating war situation. Parallel with the Kätzchen development the war situation created a demand for solutions based on the readily available Sd.Kfz.251. Ongoing research has led to the acquisition of new information that was not available when Panzer Tracts No.15-3 was published and allowed large scale accurate drawing of the 2cm Schwebelafette 38 for the Sd.Kfz.251/17 and other final Sd.Kfz.251 projects. In accordance with Panzer Tracts high standards, the text and data are based solely on primary sources.
