Historical information

The SdKfz 7 was a half-track military vehicle used by the German Wehrmacht Heer, Luftwaffe and Waffen-SS during the Second World War.

SdKfz is an abbreviation of the German word Sonderkraftfahrzeug, "special purpose vehicle". A longer designation is SdKfz 7 mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 8t, "medium towing motor vehicle 8t".

The SdKfz 7 also became the basis of a number of self-propelled anti-aircraft variants based on 20 mm and 37 mm flak types in use.

The SdKfz 7/1 was armed with a 2 cm Flakvierling 38 quadruple anti-aircraft gun system. The SdKfz 7/2 was armed with a single 3.7 cm FlaK 36 anti-aircraft gun.

On many of these variants, the driver's position and the engine cover was armoured (8 mm thickness). There were also conversions made mounting a single 2 cm anti-aircraft gun. Trial vehicles mounting a 5 cm FlaK 41 were produced but proved unsuccessful, and did not enter serial production.
