During the first half of WWII, German reconnaissance units greatly used the Sd.Kfz.231 series heavy armored car. Above all, the Sd.Kfz.232 was equipped with a Fu.11 radio and featured a large frame-type antenna mounted on the body. It also came armed with a KwK30 20mm cannon and an MG34 machine gun mounted on its turret. The 8-wheeled Sd.Kfz.232 had an on-road top speed of 90km/h, featured elaborate front and rear driving positions, and a superb 8-wheel drive system. These 8-wheeled armored cars were deployed to armored reconnaissance battalions of Panzer divisions and served as the eyes of the German army from Europe and North Africa to the Russian front.
