    This successful design was the basis for the SdKfz 251 medium armoured personnel carrier. Between 1937 and 1945 some 41,000 SdKfz 11 were built making it the most numerous German half track of World War II. On firm ground it was an ideal vehicle for towing light field guns and anti-tank guns like the 7.5cm Pak40, however in the deep mud and snow of the Eastern Front the narrow tracks did not have sufficient purchase. The SdKfz 11 was built by Hansa Lloyd, Adler, Borgward, Horch and Skoda. At the rear there was stowage for ammunition or tools and the seating could be replaced by a cargo body.

    The Sd.Kfz. 11, designed by Nazi Germany. The special motorized vehicle designed specially for moving medium towed guns ranging from the 3.7 cm FlaK 43 anti-aircraft gun up to the 10.5 cm leFH 18 field howitzer.
