Launching chaos into the enemy ranks
The self-propelled rocket launcher Sd.Kfz.4/1 Panzerwerfer 42 was a formidable vehicle that was equipped with a unit mounting 10 Nebelwerfer rocket tubes. The Nebelwerfer was originally developed as an answer to the Russian Katyusha rockets. It used 15cm tubes and had a maximum range for explosive and smoke rockets of 7,000 meters. The Panzerwerfer 42 hull featured 6-8mm of armor plus a top-mounted machine gun. Over a period of roughly a year from Spring 1943, some 300 vehicles were manufactured and thrown into hostilities on both the Western and Eastern fronts.
