In 1934, development was started on a halftracked vehicle with a 3-ton towing capacity which was to be used for the towing of trailers and the carrying of special bodies. The actual production vehicle was the HL kl 6 produced by Hanamog, Adler, Auto-Union and Skoda from 1938 to 1944. Designated le Zgkw 3t Sd. Kfz. 11, a total of 25,000 of these 3-ton chassis were produced with 16,000 being used as the basis for the m Schutzenpanzerwagen (medium armored personal carrier) Sd. Kfz. 251.
The Sd. Kfz. 11 was powered by a Maybach NL38 TUKR or HL42 TUKRM 6-cylinder engine having a top speed of 53kph for a 250km range. The standard version was mainly used to tow light artillery weapons such as the 37mm and the 105mm along with ammunition. A very rare specially designed multi-doored version was produced for engineer battalions. All versions saw heavy use on all fronts. Sold Out!
