SPG: G.Pz. Mk. VI (e)

G.Pz. Mk. VI (e)

In 1940, German forces captured approximately twenty British Mk. VI tanks. The captured vehicles were used for training purposes until the fall of 1942. In November it was decided to develop a self-propelled gun on the basis of the captured Mk. VI. In 1942, modifications with a 105- and 150-mm field howitzer were developed. All these SPGs were lost in the defense of France in the summer and fall of 1944.

Characteristics for a vehicle with basic configuration and a crew with 100% qualification.
