Sd.Kfz 234/1 - Plastic
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car, intended to replace the out-of-date Sd.Kfz 231 (8 - Rad) and Sd.Kfz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.
