Germany had not self-propelled artillery before World War II begining. The necessity of fire support of infantry caused the appearance in 1940 of new type armament - assault gun. Same machines created on bases of light and medium tanks and equipped with infantry guns.
Pz.ll chassis became the base of new self-proplled gun Wespe with 105-mm light field howitzer Type 18. The tank's engine was moved forward and the body slightly lengthened. Howitzer was instaled in thepartly armoured battle compartment. Wespe was the most successful self-propelled gun of Wehrmacht, 676 Wespes were producted by FAMO factories since February 1943 to July 1944. The first mass engagement this type of self-proppelled gun was in 1943 during the Kursk battle on Easten front.
