In the German Army, armoured cars were intended for the traditional cavalry missions of reconnaissance and screening. They scouted ahead and to the flank of advancing mechanized units to assess enemy location, strength and intention. Their primary role was reconnaissance, but they would engage similar or light units and at times attempt to capture enemy patrols. The Sd.Kfz.233 was equipped with a short barrelled 7.5 cm KwK 37 L/24 gun and based on the open-topped superstructure of the Sd. Kfz. 263 (8-Rad) radio vehicle. This variant entered service during 1942 and remained in use throughout the war. They were issued as a platoon of six vehicles in support of reconnaissance battalions. The official name was Schwerer Panzerspahwagen (7,5 cm) Sd. Kfz. 233.

Bussing-NAG Sd.Kfz.233 Panzerspahwagen

Designed as a heavily-armored reconnaissance vehicle with the mission of observing enemy forces, the Schwerer Panzerspähwagen first entered service in the mid 1930s. Originally based on a 6x4 truck design, these large but fast armored vehicles evolved to include eight-wheel designs. Though not meant to engage enemy forces, Panzerspähwagens could withstand small arms fire and could return fire with a 2 cm KwK 30 L/55 autocannon. These vehicles were operated throughout the war, though the extreme conditions in the USSR and North Africa limited their usefulness.
