The SdKfz 250 was a light armored troop-carrying halftrack used by Germany during World War II. Its angular shape was similar in appearance to the larger SdKfz 251 “Hanomag” halftrack. This smaller vehicle was used in roles where there was no need for a larger halftrack, such as scouting, forward artillery observers, headquarters, communications, etc. One of the special variants mounted the 5cm Pak 38 anti-tank gun, making a small and effective mobile tank destroyer. This is based on a spacial lengthened version of the “Neu”hull, which had a greatly simplified open top crew compartment and single entry door at the rear of the vehicl. The Sdkfz was one of the main armored half track vehicles used by Germany during the war, with over 6500 built in numerousconfiguration.
