The Sd.Kfz. 11 (Sonderkraftfahrzeug - special motorized vehicle) was a German half-track that saw very widespread use in World War II. Its main role was as a prime mover for medium towed guns ranging from the 3.7 cm FlaK 43 anti-aircraft gun up to the 10.5 cm leFH 18 field howitzer. It could carry eight troops in addition to towing a gun or trailer. The basic engineering for all the German half-tracks was developed during the Weimar-era by the Reichswehr's Military Automotive Department, but final design and testing was farmed out to commercial firms with the understanding that production would be shared with multiple companies. Borgward was chosen to develop the second smallest of the German half-tracks and built a series of prototypes between 1934 and 1937. However development was taken over in 1938 by Hanomag who designed the main production version, H kl 6. The chassis formed the basis for the Sd.Kfz. 251 medium armored personnel carrier. Approximately 9,000 were produced between 1938 and 1945, making it one of the more numerous German tactical vehicles of the war. It participated in the Invasion of Poland, the Battle of France, the Balkans Campaign and fought on both the Western Front and the Eastern Front, in North Africa and in Italy.

Hanomag Sd.Kfz.11 Half-Track

Designed as a prime-mover for medium towed guns, the Sd.Kfz.11 entered production in 1937. By German standards, the Sd.Kfz.11 was a relatively small half-track, weighing in at 16,000lbs and approximately 18 feet in length. It proved extremely versatile on the battlefield though, and was capable of carrying up to eight troops while towing a trailer or gun (typically anti-tank or anti-aircraft guns). In total more than 9,000 examples were produced, although the same chassis and drivetrain formed the basis of more than 15,000 Sd.Kfz.251 armored personnel carriers that were also produced.
