Historical information

The term Schwerer Panzerspähwagen (German: "heavy armoured reconnaissance vehicle"), covers the 6 and 8 wheeled armoured cars Germany used during the Second World War.

The heavy Panzerspähwagen was a large but very fast addition to the German mobile arsenal of the early war years. The original 6-Rad (6 wheeled) versions were based on a 6x4 truck with armoured body, but by 1937 they were being replaced by the 8-Rad versions.

The designation SdKfz stands for Sonderkraftfahrzeug (special purpose vehicle).

The SdKfz 232 was visually distinctive because of the heavy "bedstead" antenna over the body of the car. At the point where the antenna was connected to the turret a special joint was installed which supported the aerial but still allowed the turret a full 360° traverse.
