Sd.Kfz.223 Leichte Panzerspähwagen, Blitzkrieg 1940

The Sd.Kfz.221 Leichter Panzerspähwagen was a compact German 4x4 armored car, and in the early part of WWII the vehicle performed reconnaissance tasks for panzer divisions. Dragon Armor is offering a new item in the Leichter Panzerspähwagen family – the Sd.Kfz.223. This particular armored car was basically a modified Sd.Kfz.221 fitted with a long-range radio set. Its function is belied by the prominent frame antenna that was mounted above the hull. This radio allowed it to stay in touch with reconnaissance vehicles roving around the battlefield. A total of 550 Sd.Kfz.223 vehicles were made between 1935 and 1944. As on the Sd.Kfz.221, a machine gun was installed in the small turret.
The 1/72 scale Sd.Kfz.223 is based upon the highly detailed plastic kit Dragon has released earlier. It may be diminutive in size, but this reconnaissance vehicle is brimming with details. The complex angled plates of the hull are accurately depicted, as is the distinctive frame antenna. Adding to the appeal of this Dragon Armor item is a set of jerry cans stowed on the vehicle’s nose to give it a longer range. The vehicle is finished in the standard panzer gray color of early-war German vehicles. This little armored car is the perfect vehicle to stay in touch with the other reconnaissance assets that collectors already have in their blitzkrieg forces!
Caution: Adult collectible designed for use by persons 14 years of age and older.
