Tamiya German Sd.Kfz.232 Africa Corps - 8 Wheeled Heavy Armored Car
In the early stages of WWII, the German military often used the Sd.Kfz.231 series vehicles for reconnaissance missions. One of these heavy armored cars was the Sk.Kfz.232, which was equipped with a long distance wireless radio with a large antenna protruding from the top of the upper hull. In the turret was a 2cm gun and a MG34 machine gun. The 8- wheeled, Sk.Kfz.232 had an on-road top speed of 90km/h, front and rear driving positions, and a superb 8 wheel drive system. The Sd.Kfz.232 performed extremely well and proved its worth in a number of roles on many fronts from Europe to North Africa to Russia.
