WWll GERMAN MILITARY VEHICLE (28 mm.) - EASY ASSEMBLY FOR GAMERS AND COLLECTORS
The lightly armored reconnaissance vehicles “Leichte Panzerspähwagen” Sd.Kfz. 222 and 223, were widely used on all operational fronts by the German army during the Second World War. The motorization of troops and the speed in carrying out reconnaissance and offensive tasks was a key factor in the early successes of the German Blitzkrieg. These agile four-wheel drive armored cars were designed to respond precisely to this new military strategy. Deployed by the reconnaissance battalions of the armored divisions, they broadly demonstrated both good on-road and off-road performance levels. The Sd. Kfz. 222 was armed with a 20mm L / 55 gun alongside the more traditional MG13. The Sd. Kfz. 223 was also equipped with improved radio equipment that enabled much better communications with troops on the battlefield.
