During WW2, the German armed forces were the greatest user of half-track vehicles. Such vehicles were used in the Wehrmacht, Luftwaffe and Waffen-SS, where they served as personnel carriers, tractors, combat engineering vehicles, as well as self-propelled carriages for anti-aircraft and anti-tank guns. Sd. Kfz. 7, Mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 8t (middle half-track vehicle 8 tons) was designed in 1932 by Krauss Maffei and by 1937, the ultimate Km m 11 model was introduced.
Approximately 13,600 units were produced until production ceased in 1945, including about 200 built under license by BREDA in Italy and even a version by Vauxhall in the UK.
Whatever the rules might have said, German soldiers took many photographs, and these are the basis for this new series!
