The Sd Kfz 234/2 "Puma” was the first variant produced and was armed with a 5cm KwK 39/1 L/60 and co-ax 7.92mm MG in a fully enclosed turret. It weighed 11.74 tons. Its gun could sometimes get the crew into trouble, the crew being tempted to engage the enemy rather than breaking off. 101 were produced.

Production began in September 1943 and was halted in September 1944 when it was replaced by the other variants (Sd Kfz 234/1 2cm, Sd Kfz 234/3 7.5cm KwK, and Sd Kfz 234/4 7.5cm PaK40).

The Sd Kfz 234/1 was fitted with a 2cm KwK 38 L/55 gun and co-ax 7.92mm MG34 machine gun in a six-sided open turret similar to that fitted to the Sd Kfz 222. The open turret was protected from grenades by a mesh-covered frame turret covers. 200 of this variant were produced from June 1944.

All eight wheels were both driven and steered and the Sd Kfz 234s had more armour and armament than any other German armoured car that had come before.

The Sd Kfz 234 was designed as a replacement to the earlier Sd Kfz 231/232 eight-wheeled armoured cars. They were capable of speeds up to 85 km/h (53 mph) and could cross most rough terrain.
