Overview
 
After adding to its armory the Sd.Kfz.231 (8-Rad) heavy armored car in 1937, the military command ordered a special modification of this car intended for service in advanced reconnaissance units. The primary tasks for this car were stable radio communication with general headquarters, and coordination of fighting units in action. The distinctive features of the new armored car were an armored body with a fixed turret, and a long external radio aerial installed on the body. The bigger turret was justified by an increase of the crew to 5 persons, 2 of them being radio operators. The radio equipment consisted of the Funkgerat fur msttleren Pz.-Funktrupp "b" radio station and Kurbelmast "P" adjustable telescopic antenna.
