The 8 wheeled heavy armoured car Sd.Kfz.232 was developed by Büssing-NAG in 1934 and was quite advanced for it’s time with 8 wheel independent suspension, 8 wheel drive and 8 wheel steering with 3 forward and 3 reverse gears powered by a 155 hp (116 kW), eight-cylinder Büssing-NAG L8V-G petrol engine which gave a top road speed of 85 km/h (53 mph) and a range of 300 km (170 miles).
The Sd.Kfz.232 8-Rad was armed with a turret mounted 2cm KwK30 cannon and co-axial 7.92mm MG34 with a crew of 4 and initially carried the Fu.11 radio with large frame antenna and about 600 Sd.Kfz.232/263 “Funkspähwagen” were produced between 1936 and 1943 when replaced by the Sd.Kfz.234. Despite being replaced the Sd.Kfz.232/263 soldiered on with upgraded radio communication equipment and the frame antenna replaced with more modern and compact wire antennas.
