Sd.Kfz 234/1 - Plastic Model Kit.

After the Hawker Typhoon fighter was added to the R.A.F.'s inventory the Panzerwaffe endured heavy casualties and German troop movements became complicated. As the Typhoon was armed with 4 cannons and 8 rockets the German Military Command put out a requirement that a new armored car, intended to replace the out-of-date Sd.Kfz 231 (8 - Rad) and Sd.Kfz 232 (8 - Rad), should be able to resist air attacks.
The new Sd.Kfz 234 was equipped with a 20-mm KwK38 gun installed in a hexagonal turret, allowing 360 degree rotation and a good vertical arc of fire (from - 4 to + 70 degree). Installed the same way in the Sd.Kfz 222 and the Sd.Kfz 250/9 it showed itself to be very effective in combat. The low turret was covered by netting, and had 14.5 mm armor on side and 30 mm in front. A 7.92 mm MG 42 machine gun was also installed on the turret, offset to the left.
