For the Steel Division II unit see SD2:Sd.Kfz. 250/10

Sd.Kfz. 250/10 is a German Transport unit.

Overview[]

Leichter Gepanzerte Kraftswagen (Light Armored Truck) was developed by combining a Sd.Kfz. 10 chassis modified by Demag with an armored body produced by Bussing-NAG. The goal was to provide armored divisions with a multipurpose armored halftrack, capable of keeping pace with them and affording its occupants a degree of protection. The design was finalized in 1941, after two years of work, and the vehicle entered production. Over 4000 were produced before a modified version (designated as Neu, New) was introduced in 1943, with a simplified armored body and slightly reduced weight. 2000 were produced.

Sd.Kfz.250 were used in Reconnaissance units. 250/10 was an early attempt to provide recon platoon commanders (Zugfuhrer) with a fire support vehicle. Mounting the 3,7 cm PaK 35/36 L/46 in place of the forward machine gun mount, it was a somewhat reliable weapon in the early years. However, it proved to be woefully ineffective against modern Soviet tanks and production ceased after only 150.
