Sonderkraftfahrzeug 250

Lego Technic Sd.Kfz. 250 Half-Track

A valiant effort from your brain in trying to pronounce that title as you read it. Have another go…

The Sonderkraftfahrzeug or ‘special motor vehicle’ (hereby known as the Sd.Kfz. 250, as even the Germans didn’t like to pronounce it), was a lightly armoured half-track multi-purpose transport used by the German military throughout World War 2.

Armed with a single or double machine gun, the Sd.Kfz. 250 saw duty as a troop carrier, radio vehicle, command transport and reconnaissance car, and could reach almost 50mph.

This rather neat remotely controlled Technic version of the Sd.Kfz. 250 comes from Chawn of Eurobricks, and features working suspension, twin L-Motor drive to both the tracks and the front wheels, and RC steering.

There’s more to see of Chawn’s remote control half-track – including a video of it in action – at the Eurobricks forum – make the jump via the link above.

    Pronouncing Sonderkraftfahrzeug is really not all that difficult. It’s the same number of syllables as the abbreviated Sd.Kfz, believe it or not. Repeat after me:


    The important thing here is the German ‘z’ is pronounced as a ‘ts’ sound, with the following ‘eug’ bit sounding like ‘oig’, so really the ‘fahrzeug’ part sounds more like ‘farts-oig’.

    Imagine Ralf Schumacher saying ‘farts’ and it makes it all better.
