28cm Rocket launcher by Dru-Zod 28cm Rocket launcher by Dru-Zod
After the fall of France in World War 2,the German military captured a lot of French equipment. One of the vehicles used by The Germans was the U.E. cargo carrier. This version was modified to carry a rocket launcher.
I used the Tamiya kit,with the rocket launcher parts from RPM.
1/35 scale.

Very nice... An extremely small tank with unique hatch covers. Looks like you got the color right, and just the right level of weathering, which is easily overdone. I like how the rockets look like they sat on the ground and got filthy before being loaded. Thumbs up from me, and I've been building for 50 years!

This one was nicknamed "Stuka zu Fuss" ,
Stuka on Foot / Walking Stuka.
Wurfrahmen 40 / launch frame 40
Was a weapon system consisted of a framework with adjustable base plates fitted over and alongside a vehicle which could hold 300 mm high explosive (HE) rockets; 280 mm HE and 320 mm incendiary rockets

They had tow types used on that type of launcher. 28cm,or 32 cm. They were called nebelwerfer. A short range explosive rocket. They were not real accurate back then. They gave off a terrible sound when in flight.

The Soviets used rocket batteries as well.

No. The German forces captured a lot of the U.E. vehicles after the fall of France. From what I know,forty of the rocket launchers were made in 1944.
