Description Extended Information
 
Altaya ALT95894 German Sd. Kfz. 250/3 Light Command Half-Track (1:72 Scale) "Rommel, you magnificent bastard. I read your book."
- George C. Scott playing the part of General George S. Patton, Jr. from the feature film "Patton"

The Sd. Kfz. 250 was a light armored halftrack, very similar in appearance to the larger Hanomag-designed Sdkfz 251, and built by the DEMAG firm, for use by Nazi Germany in World War II. The 250 had 4 roadwheels and a cargo capacity of one ton.

Compared to U.S. halftracks, the Sd. Kfz. 250 series was less mobile, with unpowered front wheels. However, its tracks made it far more mobile than the armored cars it replaced, and it was a popular vehicle. Most variants were open-topped and had a single access door in the rear.

Adopted in 1939 to supplement the standard halftrack, it was based on the 1938 Sd.Kfz. 10 prime mover and intended to carry an infantry section in company with an armoured car. Production delays meant the first 250 did not appear until mid 1941.

The Sd. Kfz. 250/3 leichter Funkpanzerwagen was designed as a command variant, equipped with radio equipment and the "bedstead" aerial frame.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a German Sd. Kfz. 250/9 light half-track. Now in stock!
