Overview
 
In the mid-1930s, while the Sd.Kfz 231 (8-Rad) heavy eight-wheeled armored vehicle was being introduced, the German command considered the experience gained operating the similar Sd.Kfz 231 (6-Rad) and Sd.Kfz 232 (6-Rad) armored vehicles. The '232' version differed from its predecessor only in the specialized radio communication equipment which allowed wireless radio communication between cars during reconnaissance raids to be maintained. The only external difference was the bow antenna which was welded onto the armored body of the car. At the point where the antenna was connected to the turret a special joint was installed which allowed the turret to stay mobile and rotate 360 degrees.
