Sdkfz 233 is a German armoured car.


The Sdfkz 233 is a fire support variant of the Sdkfz 231. Instead of a turret, the vehicle is armed with a 75mm KwK 37 L/24 gun with high explosive rounds in an open-topped superstructure. Its main role is to provide heavy firepower for infantry and other reconnaissance units. The Sdkfz 233 is not armed with machine gun, and the sole operator is vulnerable to enemy fire, therefore it should be closely accompanied with other friendly forces when engaging the enemy.

It makes appearance from late 1942 onward.
