Sd.Kfz. 250/8 is a German Support 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.

The 250/8 was a pragmatic solution that recycled surplus 7,5 cm KwK 37 L/24 howitzers leftover from the Panzer IV upgrade program. The halftrack's troop section was heavily redesigned to accommodate the howitzer and ammo bins. The cramped vehicle proved to be a useful tool, receiving an upgraded 7,5 cm K51 L/24 howitzer in 1944, and continued to serve until the end of the war.
