Hobby Boss 1/35 Sd.Kfz. 222 Leichter Panzerspahwagen 2cm KitHBB-82442
Used by the reconnaissance battalions ( Aufklarungs-Abteilung ) of the Panzer divisions, the type performed well enough in countries with good road networks, like those in Western Europe. However, on the Eastern Front and in North Africa, this class of vehicles was hampered by its relatively poor off-road performance. In those theaters, it gradually found itself replaced in the reconnaissance role by the Sd. Kfz. 250 half-track. The Sd. Kfz. 250/9 was the Sd. Kfz. 250 with the same turret as the Sd.Kfz. 222.
