The Sd. Kfz. 233 was developed to give the armored reconnaissance squadron a weapon capable of engaging enemy armor and area targets. The Sd. Kfz. 233 reconnaissance car mounted a powerful 7.5cm StuK37 L/24 cannon over the driver's compartment and was capable of attaining cross-country speeds in excess of 80 Km/hr. Built by Schichau, 109 vehicles were produced between December 1942 to October 1943.
Pictured here is a 1:43 scale replica of a German Sd. Kfz. 233 Reconnaissance Car that was attached to the 2.Panzer Division, then deployed to Falaise, France, during 1944.
