From the manufacturer:

The Wurfrahmen 40 ("launch frame 40") was a German WWII multiple rocket launcher. When used on the SdKfz 251 half track, a frame with six base plates was used, with three on each side. It formed a more mobile and protracted artillery piece than the towed Nebelwerfer. It was nicknamed Stuka zu Fuss ("Stuka on foot" or "walking Stuka") and Heulende Kuh ("bellowing cow").

INtroduced in late 1940, the weapon system was a framework with adjustable base plates fitted over and alongside a vehicle which could hold 300mm high explosive (HE) rockets; 280mm HE and 320mm incendiary rockets were also used, the rockets being fired while in their loading crates. Although spin stablized, the rockets were not as accurate as conventional artillery, and reloading was time-consuming due to the rocket's weight. Rockets were ripple-fired in large numbers where feasible to quickly saturate a target. The Wurfrahmen 40 was successful in service as a support weapon for the mobile Panzer formations, particularly in urban areas.

This highly detailed plastic kit depicts a SdKfz 251 Ausf D with a Wufrahmen 40 multiple rocket launcher. The Wufrahmen 40 frame is detachable, enabling you to revert the vehicle back into a standard SdKfz 251/1 Ausf D personnel carrier if desired. 

Molded in dark gray/green plastic; decals included.
