Waffenträger Ardelt-Krupp Tank Destroyer

The Waffenträger Ardelt-Krupp (Waffenträger 8,8 cm Pak 43 L/71) was built in cooperation between Ardelt and Krupp. This was quite likely the only Waffenträger to ever see combat resulting in a vehicle being captured and Ardelt killed. The vehicle had a fully rotating turret.
