The Saurer company started to develop the vehicle in 1936 as an artillery tractor for the Austrian army. The first tractors were produced in 1938. About 12 vehicles were made prior to Anschluss (incorporation of Austria into Nazi Germany, March 1938). After the Anschluss production continued. A total of 140 units were built with the new designation RK-7 (Räder-Kettenfahrgestell), although Wehrmacht called them Sd. Kfz. 254. The vehicle had a wheel/track layout and a diesel motor. The wheels were lowered when it was used on roads and retracted for cross-country movement. Some Sd. Kfz. 254's served as artillery observation vehicles for the Afrika Korps after being fitted with a radio and rail antenna.
