Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Panzerstahl PS88011 German Sd. Kfz. 234/1 8-Wheeled Armored Car - 6.Panzer Division, Czechoslovakia, April 1945 (1:72 Scale) "We must do everything we can to promote anti-tank defense, and work just as hard to guarantee successful counter-attacks through the instrument of powerful tank forces of our own."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"

The SdKfz 234 (Sonderkraftfahrzeug 234, or special purpose vehicle 234) was an eight-wheeled armoured car used by the German Army in the Second World War. It broadly resembles the SdKfz 231 (8 rad).

The combat experience of the existing 8-wheeled armoured cars during the German invasions of Poland and France, indicated some deficiencies in the current design. Therefore, in August 1940 an improvement program was started, based on a new set of requirements learned from these combat experiences. The result was the SdKfz 234.

Developed from the Bussing-NAG SdKfz 232, design of the Sd Kfz 234 began in 1940. It was to have a monocoque chassis with eight wheels, like its predecessors, and an aircooled engine for use in North Africa.

Chassis were built by Bussing-NAG in Leipzig-Wahren, while armoured bodies were provided by Deutsche Edelstahlwerke of Krefeld and turrets by Daimler Benz in Berlin-Marienfeld and Schichau of Elbing, with engines from Ringhoffer-Tatra-Werke AG of Nesseldorf.

The 234/1 boasted a 2 cm KwK 30 L/55 autocannon, as well as a MG34 machinegun, and featured an open-topped turret. Around 200 were produced.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a German Sd. Kfz. 234/1 8-wheeled armored car that was attached to the 6.Panzer Division, then deployed to Czechoslovakia during April 1945. Now in stock!
