An army can’t attack or defend against what it can’t see, and with the Red Army’s determined defence in the face of every German counterattack proving a tough nut to crack, the Sd Kfz 221 and 222 armoured cars were required to gather valuable intelligence on enemy positions and screen advancing forces.

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.

Often paired with either infantry or tank advances, the Sd Kfz 221 and 222 armoured cars came in a variety of forms to fill out the roster of roles a scout troop might be required to fill. The MG 34 of the standard Sd Kfz 221 provided an effective means of keeping infantry at bay or pinning them down with speedy flanking maneuvers, while the Sd Kfz 222’s 2cm KwK 30 L/55 autocannon and 7.92 mm MG 13 machine gun gave it the tools to engage infantry and enemy armoured cars.

For slightly more formidable enemy targets encountered on reconnaissance missions, some 221s swapped the 2cm and MG 13 in exchange for the 2.8cm Panzerbüchse 41, a light anti-tank gun capable of dealing with lightly armoured enemy vehicles and tanks like the Soviet BA-10 or T-60.
