The Sd.Kfz 222 Armoured Car was used as an armoured Scout vehicle issued to the Panzersphwagen squadrons of the Aufklrungs battalions.It operated well throughout the conflict and on most theatres. Its 4 wheels drive gave it some versatility but the limited fuel capacity and poor off-road performance reduced its range and effectiveness in harsh environments like North Africa and Russia.It mounted a 20mm gun alongside an MG 34 machine gun and the open turret enabled the main gun to be also used as in anti-aircraft role. Even if this vehicle was eventually superceded by the Sdkfz 250, it could still be seen in operation till the end of the conflict.Contents: 1 resin Sd. Kfz 222Supplied unpainted and unassembled
