The Leichter Panzerspähwagen was a German light armoured car produced from 1935 until 1944. Germany developed several variants of this vehicle. The Sd. Kfz. 222 was an improved version of the Sd. Kfz. 221, armed initially with a 2cm KwK 30 L/55 and a 7.92mm MG 13. Later on the MG 13 machine gun was replaced by the Maschinengewehr 34, and the KwK 30 was replaced by the KwK 38 of the same calibre. This variant of the vehicle was called the Leichter Panzerspähwagen 2 cm. Its production ran from 1937 to 1943 with nearly a thousand vehicles built in total.

The Sd. Kfz. 222 proved to be very efficient in the Balkans in 1941. Large numbers of these armoured cars were also sent to North Africa, however the limited volume of their fuel tanks meant the lack of effective range. The Sd. Kfz. 222 was gradually substituted with the Sd.Kfz.250/9 (Hanomag). A small number of vehicles were sold to China in 1939.
