Destroyed early production (<06.1943) Hummel from Pz.Div.HG. Near Cisterna, Italy. 29 May 1944

Trivia-bit: The planned employment of Sfl.Artillerie within Panzer-Division did not go as planned in the southern and middle of Italy. "This was due to the peculiarity of the terrain and the combat situation. In actual fact the Sfl. were preponderantly employed in platoons or indeed only as an individual guns. Therefore, in no way were useful experiences obtained on the tactical employment of the Sfl. --- Losses to mechanical breakdowns are especially high when compared to losses occuring due to enemy action. --- The troops want their old towed batteries back." Waffenamt report, dated 17 November 1943

Yeah, it is probably a Husqvarna, or some other black powder double barreled hunting rifle.
