German SdKfz 124 Wespe Self-Propelled Guns, on a street in Romania, in March 1944. Exact location unknown.
Did you know? In 1943, the Wespe made its combat debut on the Eastern Front with success. Impressed by its performance, Hitler directed the exclusive allocation of Panzer II chassis production to the Wespe, prioritizing it over other projects, such as the Marder II self-propelled anti-tank gun.
These vehicles were assigned to the armored artillery battalions (Panzerartillerie Abteilungen) within Panzer divisions, alongside the more substantial Hummel self-propelled artillery. The Wespe significantly enhanced the mobility of the artillery units within the panzer divisions.
