24 possible variants now...   :o
Really can't cope with doing all of them...  But it is tempting! lol
A few have very dubious provenance: 20mm flak, command version and the one below "mit stuka zu Fuss" and possibly never existed.  Others are just plain ridiculous like the 17pdr version but they did at least build one of them!

Looks cool

Seems to be the normal German approach of take a hull and take a gun and join them together. The only thing that seems to have varied is scale, was it a lash-up at a unit workshop or was it a proper factory conversion.

But it does seem you can pretty much take any pair and mate them up!

Free French built with MG151 autocannon.  Allegedly saw action in the liberation of France and all were lost.

The family so far

The free French version just failed for some reason so I'll have to try again.
