Schwerer Panzerspahwagen Sd. Kfz. 233
This item is constructed mostly of die cast metal with some plastic parts.
The heavy Panzerspähwagen was a large but very fast addition to the German mobile arsenal of the early war years. The original 6-Rad (6 wheeled) versions were based on a 6x4 truck with armoured body, but by 1937 they were being replaced by the 8-Rad versions. These vehicles first saw combat with the campaign against Poland and in the Battle of France. Later they saw use in both the USSR and North Africa. The speed of the eight-wheeled cars made them the best scouting vehicles that Rommel had for long range reconnaissance across the wide desert territory.
Caution: This item is an adult collectible designed for use by persons 14 years of age and older.
