Phunn are these: A Callen parody
*****
Panzer: Sdkfz 251/1, Ausf C
In winterly attire, both vehicle and crew member.
Note that the trooper's reversible winter uniform is composed form the early (1942) version mouse grey jacket, and a pair of the later version trousers in German Army splinter camouflage.
This was not uncommon, since the winter uniforms were not part of the soldiers personal kit, like the greatcoat and the rain poncho, but were distributed in autumn and returned to the depot again after spring. The name painted on the hull of the 251, Heinz Graf, was probable a former crew member killed in action and awarded the Iron Cross.
