The rear end of that SdKfz 251 sure looks odd, did they remove it for some reason?

Hi Neil! Hi Folks!

Alan and Jim are correct. Here is a photo of it pulling a T58E1 trailier with a T26E1 tank on board.


Photo is from U.S. Military Wheeled Vehicles by Fred W. Crismon. That book has stats and a few more photos.

Follow up spot report!
Sgt, Scouts Out!

True, although we dont necessarily have confirmation that all of these (or firm info for almost any of them) were actually scrapped. Some may have been transferred to other collections/museums, and possibly others still are "behind the fence" (albeit more doubtful). But yes, more than likely, most were scrapped...
