Leichter Panzerspähwagen

Captain Eugene’s Leichter Panzerspähwagen SD KFZ 222

The Leichter Panzerspähwagen (Light Armoured Reconnaissance Vehicle) was widely used by the German military throughout World War II. This particular example, built by Captain Eugene, is a SD KFZ 222 in North African specification. Built by Auto Union (which would later become Audi) the SD KFZ featured a 3.5 liter Horch V8, MG34 machine gun, 2cm Kwk cannon, and it could even be fitted with a 28mm anti-tank cannon.
