HobbyBoss 1:35 German Sd.Kfz.222 Leichter Panzerspahwagen (1st Series)


The Leichter Panzerspähwagen was a light four-wheel drive armoured car produced by Nazi Germany between 1935 and 1944. It had the standard sPkw I Horch 801 chassis and a 67 kW (90 hp) Horch 3.5 petrol engine, which give it a road speed of 80 km/h and a cross-country speed of 40 km/h. The car had a maximum range of 300 km.

The Leichter Panzerspähwagen was used by the reconnaissance battalions of the Panzer divisions. It performed well enough in countries with good road networks, like Western Europe, but on the Eastern Front and in North Africa it was hampered by its relatively poor off-road performance and was gradually replaced in the reconnaissance role by the Sdkfz 250 half-track.
