Sd Kfz 231 Heavy Scout Troop (GBX113) Sd Kfz 231 Heavy Scout Troop (GBX113)
includes four resin and metal Sd Kfz 231 Heavy Scout Armoured Cars, one plastic Commander sprue and two Unit cards.

The eight-wheeled Sd Kfz 231 had excellent mobility and off-road capability, lending it to reconnaissance missions across treacherous terrain—terrain its smaller, four-wheeled cousins were unable to traverse.

Iron Cross
By the end of 1941, the German blitzkrieg had swept across open plains of the Soviet Union and stopped at the gates of Moscow as winter set in. The halt was only temporary as the Germans were back on the offensive in the summer of 1942. The attack sliced into the southern front, aiming at the oilfields of the Caucasus. Two army groups charged forward, one heading to the mountain country in the south, the other focussed on a small city on the Volga River called Stalingrad. The unstoppable German offensive was pushing Soviet morale to a breaking point as the most pivotal battles on the Eastern Front were about to be fought on the streets of Stalingrad and in the Russian Steppe.

With heavier armour than the Sd Kfz 221 & 222, the 231 was not only employed to gather intelligence in arduous conditions, but also to break up enemy ambushes and engage light enemy vehicles and infantry groups ahead of the main combat elements.
