Panzer - The "Hanomag" as it was often referred to by the allies, was a halftrack buildt to carry infantry for supporting the panzers during attack - the so-called panzer-grenadiers.
By the Germans it was referred to as the Sonder Kraft Zeug 251 (SdKfz 251) and designed to carry eight fully equipped troopers. As can be seen in this photo from late 1944 or early 1945 supplies of 251's were never sufficient and a lot more men were usually carried. The photos must have been taken immediately before an engagement as only lunatics would ride on the outside of the vehicle during an actual attack.

Babe - Nice earrings.
