In the early stages of WWII, the German military often used the Sd.Kfz.231 series vehicles for reconnaissance missions. One of these heavy armored cars was the Sk.Kfz.232, which was equipped with a long distance wireless radio with a large antenna protruding from the top of the upper hull. In the turret was a 2cm gun and a MG34 machine gun. The 8- wheeled, Sk.Kfz.232 had an on-road top speed of 90km/h, front and rear driving positions, and a superb 8 wheel drive system. The Sd.Kfz.232 performed extremely well and proved its worth in a number of roles on many fronts from Europe to North Africa to Russia.
