Sdkfz 222 is a German armoured car.

DescriptionEdit

The Sdkfz 222 is a fast armoured car equipped with a 20mm KwK 30 automatic cannon and a co-axial MG 34 machine gun, making it effective against light vehicles and infantry. It is lightly armoured, therefore it is unsuitable to fight against tanks, but its speed makes it an efficient reconnaissance vehicle. Being common in the early phase of the war, the Sdkfz 222 was later replaced by halftracks and eight-wheeled armoured cars which offer better offroad capabilities. Some of them were sold to China prior to WW2 and saw action against the Japanese.

The guns have high elevation, allowing it to attack enemies from higher position or even enemy aircraft.
