Sd.Kfz.7 Mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 8t Paperback / softback
by Alan Ranger
Part of the Camera on series
During WW2, the German armed forces were the greatest user of half-track vehicles.
Such vehicles were used in the Wehrmacht, Luftwaffe and Waffen-SS, where they served as personnel carriers, tractors, combat engineering vehicles, as well as self-propelled carriages for anti-aircraft and anti-tank guns.
Sd. Kfz. 7, Mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 8t (middle half-track vehicle 8 tons) was designed in 1932 by Krauss Maffei and by 1937, the ultimate Km m 11 model was introduced.
Approximately 13,600 units were produced until production ceased in 1945, including about 200 built under license by BREDA in Italy and even a version by Vauxhall in the UK.
Camera On: a new series of books on the equipment and operations of the German Wehrmacht in WW2.
The focus is on the often ignored or overlooked soft-skinned, non-armoured, vehicles used by the German army.
This profusely illustrated photo-album includes a large number of previously unseen pictures, many from private sources in Germany.
Whatever the rules might have said, German soldiers took many photographs, and these are the basis for this new series!
