The 15cm (Sf) Lorraine Schlepper is a strange marriage of a First World War 15cm sFH13 howitzer hitched to a captured French Lorraine armoured supply carrier. The result is rather odd-looking but is still an effective self-propelled artillery piece.
During the Fall Of France in 1940, the Germans captured a large number of 37L Lorraine Carriers. In May 1942 it was decided to use these chassis to mount a 15cm gun to be sent to Africa to support Rommel’s army. 40 Lorraine Schlepper chassis were converted to mount a 15cm sFH 13, a gun dating from the First World War.
12 were for the 21. Panzerdivision, 12 for the 15. Panzerdivision and 6 for the 90. Leichte Division. In July and August 1942 these were shipped, but only 23 vehicles arrived in Africa. After El Alamein, all vehicles were reported lost.
