28mm (1/56) 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 Panzerwerfer 42.

Suitable for German forces.
