The Sd.Kfz. 250 was a half-track widely used by German mechanized infantry troops during World War II. It was developed on the technical basis of the Sd.Kfz.10 artillery tractor, it was intended to be a flexible and reliable solution for moving infantry at the same pace as armored units.
The Sd.Kfz. 250 was armed with one or two 7.92 mm MG34 machine guns and could carry a squad of 4 soldiers on the battlefield. The appreciation of the vehicle was the basis for the development of numerous variants, such as the 250/3 Leichter Funkpanzerwagen version (light armored vehicle for radio communications), used as a communications center between advanced troops, artillery and aviation. One of the uses of the 250/3 was the “Greif”, which was famously used by Erwin Rommel in North Africa, was a real forward command post in close contact with the troops on the front line.
