The Sd.Kfz 222 Armoured Car was used a an armoured Scout vehicle issued to the Panzerspähwagen squadrons of the Aufklärungs battalions.
It operated well throughout the conflict and on most theatres. Its 4 wheels drive gave it some versatility but the limited fuel capacity and poor off-road performance reduced its range and effectiveness in harsh environments like North Africa and Russia.
It mounted a 20mm gun alongside an MG 34 machine gun and the open turret enabled the main gun to be also used as in anti-aircraft role.
Even if this vehicle was eventually superceded by the Sdkfz 250, it could still be seen in operation till the end of the conflict.
