Hello to all :D; a little more.................

15 cm sIG 33 auf Fahrgestell Panzerkampfwagen I Ausf B (Sf).

This vehicle was an adaptation of "war" given the need arose in Poland to increase mobility and maintain the support of a heavy weapon (sIG 33 150 mm) for the motorized rifle units in the armored divisions, and was logical to take the chassis of tanks that could no longer fulfill its role on the battlefield ..... To use a better chassis (Pz Kw III or IV) was impossible at that time, because they were just arriving to the panzer divisions, which had increased their number by reinforcing the four light armored divisions.

Hello Raul,
You are richt;
The pics are extracted from de propaganda movie "Sieg in Westen" and show us a sIG33 (Sfl) on chassis of Pz Kw near the railway station of Hangest sur Somme and just after crossing the Somme river non exploded bridge. Here below is an old postcard showing the same location (noted "café de la gare")
