The Sd.Kfz.232 Schwerer Panzerspähwagen (Fu) was a reconnaissance heavy armoured car that incorporated additional medium-range radio equipment and a distinctive large frame antenna for long-range communications. It was armed with a hexagonal-shaped turret mounting a 2 cm KwK 30 L/55 automatic cannon and one MG34 coaxial machine gun. It had 8-wheel drive and steering with two driver positions front and rear, allowing it to change direction without turning around. It was produced from 1938 to 1943, when it began to be replaced in favour of the more modern and easier to produce Sd.Kfz.234/1 and Sd.Kfz.234/2 Puma new models.
