Sd Kfz 251/1 Ausf C
These lightly armoured vehicles were meant to enable Panzergrendiers to accompany the tanks and provide infantry support as required. Variations of this basic infantry carrier were built including engineering vehicles and self propelled guns. The basic vehicle could carry an infantry section of 10 men. Because of this models simplified bodywork compared to the previous B model, production was able to be increased but was still not enough to supply demand.
