jumjumWhy, when the Stug IV carries the equivalent gun, has virtully the same mobility, is a tremendously stronger and more stable gun platform, and is 100 times more survivable?

Same reason you have Marders when there are Tigers, M36 when you've got a Firefly, whatever. It was there and it was used. I mean, the germans used Renault FT tanks to patrol airfields in occupied France, even though they were miserable pieces of junk. It's either what they ended up with, either by capturing it or because some committee at some point thought it might be a great idea.

Just because something is completely impractical, dangerous, slow and undergunned doesn't mean it shouldn't occur :-)

Simple :

They probably had a surplus of hanomags at a moment were they prefered to keep their Panzer IV hulls to make tanks.

Werwolf1944:naughty: The Sd.Kfz. 251/22 "Pakwagen"

review75.JPG It would be easy to make, just add a 75 mm Pak 40 to the Hanomag.

251/22D was used as a defensive AT gun carriage- not an assult gun. Put into service when Germany was on the denfensive in the later parts of the war.

For sh$ts & giggles: a modified 251A with something that looks bigger than a PaK40. 251-88.jpg
