I would like to suggest the Gepanzerter schwerer Wehrmachtschlepper mit 3,7 cm Flak 43 L/57. In game it can be placed at a lower Br (around 2.3-2.7) while the gun is quite powerfull with a good fire rate, the chassis however, compared to other halftracts trades allmost all mobility for some armor and strong gears for very high offroad capability with strong gears to be powerfull with towing, transporting and general while slow, allways good mobility, with a top speed of just 27 kmh.

The later stages of the War, the production capacitys where allready hindered by bombing, so ration production of less different models was considdered, so instead of 5 different halftracts as main towing vehicles it was decided to change to just 2-3, namely the leichter Wehrmachtschlepper (which didnt go past the paper stage duo problems and turning out to be not ideal) and the schwerer Wehrmachtschlepper which while overall good and rather easy to produce was far slower than the other models, cince it had so high gearing for high towing strength over speed, which is why in the end it didnt replace the other vehicles.

The Chassis: schwerer Wehrmachtschlepper:
Produced by Büssig-NAG (825 produced)
Length: 6,67 m
Width: 2,5 m
Height: 2,8 m
Weight: 13,5 t
