Last Ditch Defense
Developed during WWII, the Wespe was based upon the Pz.Kpfw.II chassis and employed the lFH18 10.5cm howitzer, which could propel 14kg rounds over distances of up to 10.6km. Some 676 Wespes were manufactured between February 1943 and July 1944, and they saw extensive use in both infantry support and anti-tank roles, from the Eastern Front across to Normandy and Italy in the West. In January 1944, Allied forces attempted to decisively swing the balance in Italy with landings at Anzio; Wespe self-propelled howitzers were an integral part of the 26th Panzer and 29th Panzer Grenadier Divisions as the Germans responded.
