20mm (1/72) 8 cm Raketen-Vielfachwerfer auf Somua MCL
Captured Somua MCL converted with into self-propelled artillery by Alfred Becker, combining Soviet and French technologies.
The French Somua MCL was a close cousin of the Somua MCG with a slightly different arrangement of the kegresse track system. Becker's workshop adding armoured plate to the chassis.
The rack of 8cm rockets mounted on the back was a German copy of the early Soviet BM-8 Kayusha rocket system which used smaller rockets with many more launch rails than later heavier rocket systems. This turned this halftrack into a capable armoured weapon of area bombardment.
The 8 cm Raketen-Vielfachwerfer system was also mounted on the armoured version of the Mauliter usualy fitted with the Panzerwerfer 42.
Suitable for German forces.
