I would like to suggest the 7,7 cm WD Schlepper 50 PS. Funny name, what is it? Oh thats simple its a classical 1920 fully tracked tractor with some armor put on and a 7,7 cm FK 96 L/27 put on a 30° platform with gunshield on it. Crew of 2 1 build and put into service. Funny story, but similar to the Zis 30.


The Wehrmacht gave on the 08.10.1926 an order to Krupp AG to construct an SPG for a 7,5 cm Infantry gun. It was an civil Fully tracked vehicle to be used and a Gun with shield of 8mm with 15° traverse to each side as well as -10 and +40° elevation. The Hull armor 10mm and a max speed of 12 km/H. ammo was at the back in 5mm armored boxes.


The gun is the 7,7 cm FK 96 with about the same projectiles as the later 7,5 cm K 37 L/24 (the FK 96 were later also rechamered for 7,5 mm ammo which is based on the 7,7 cm ammo)

There was an He grenade, which i couldnt find info on, but one He grenade was called Feldgranate 96 with a weight of 6,8 kg and 190g of TNT (had a good shrapnell and a moderate AT performance used in WW1 with great sucsess against British landship tanks also 465m/s by gaijins calculation 53-57mm penetration.

There was also AP grenade perhaps the preversion of the K.Gr.Rot Pz with 6,8 kg fired at 465m/s and by gaijins calculation with wopping 66mm at 10m

+1, looks cool to me.  Would have to be added in an event or something for the memes only though since its usefulness is highly questionable.
