The concept for the Sd.Kfz. 7 dates back to 1934 when the need for this type of vehicle was
realized. It wasn’t until 1938 before the first vehicle actually left the factory. The vehicle had
theater-type bench seats capable of carrying up to 12 men. There was stowage room at the rear
for ammunition for the large guns it usually towed. These vehicles required a lot of maintenance
and were prone to tracks breaking. The on road speed wasn’t very good but it off-road abilities
made up for it.

Hermann Goring wanted to be part of the land victories as well so he created an elite Luftwaffe
armored division called the Fallschirm-Panzer-Division 1. Hermann Göring. As German bomber
activity became less viable the crews were assigned to ground units. At the beginning of WWII it
was a flak unit that steadily grew to include armored vehicles. The Sd.Kfz.7 was largely used to
haul the heavy 8.8 cm Flak gun and up to 12 gun crew. This vehicle was under the command of
the Luftwaffe Luftgaukommando VI (Munster).
