The Leichter Panzerspahwagen (light armoured reconnaissance vehicle) was a series of light four-wheel drive armoured cars produced by Nazi Germany from 1935 to 1944. Designed to meet operational requirements including reliability, run on a variety of grades of fuel, simple construction and good off-road performance the first such vehicle was the Sd Kfz 221 but this proved too small and too lightly armed, so in 1936-37 a heavier version was planned, using one of two standard chassis for four-wheel armoured cars, one with a front-mounted engine, the other rear-mounted version, was used in the Sd Kfz 222, which became the standard light armoured car in German army service until the defeat of Nazi Germany.

Auto Union Sd.Kfz.222 Panzerspahwagen

The Leichter Panzerspähwagen was light-weight, four-wheel drive armoured reconnaissance vehicle. The vehicle was constructed by assembling an angled armour-plated body on top of a Horch 801 Heavy Car chassis, and adding an open turret that carried a 2cm KwK 30 L/55 autocannon as well as a 7.92mm MG34 machine gun. They type was used by reconnaissance battalions of the Panzer divisions and proved quite capable on the paved roads of Western Europe. Unfortunately, its performance was found to be inadquate for off-road use in the Eastern Front and Northern Africa, where Half-Tracks proved more capable.
