The Luftwaffe spearheaded the invasion of Poland and Western Europe with great results. But Operation Barbarossa brought a new realization that the Luftwaffe wasn’t invincible. Severe aircraft losses both on the Eastern front and in North Africa meant the Luftwaffe had more men than airplanes so the personnel were assigned to ground combat duties. They ended up forming 2 mechanized divisions as well as 10 Parachute Divisions and 21 Field Divisions. At one point the Luftwaffe ground forces equaled that of the Wehrmacht.

Krauss-Maffei Sd.Kfz.7 Half-Track

Designed to meet a 1934 requirement for an eight ton armored half-track vehicle, The Sd.Kfz.7 first entered service in 1938. Its primary use was as a tractor for the 8.8 cm FlaK gun and 150 mm howitzer, but anti-aircraft variants were also produced. It could carry gun crews of up to 12 men and their gear, with room for ammunition storage as well. Used throughout the war, the Sd.Kfz. 7 appeared in the 1940 Paris victory parade, was featured in German propaganda films and became one of the most iconic half-track vehicles of its time.
