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.

The creation of the German 10th Infantry Division’s took place in October 1934 but was named
Wehrgauleitung Regensburg (later Kommandant von Regensburg) to hide the fact that Germany
was rebuilding its armed forces that were forbidden under the Treaty of Versailles. One year later
the unit was renamed the 10th Infantry Division when Germany announced to the world it had
created a Wehrmacht. The 10th took part in the annexation of Austria, invasion of Poland and
France and became the 10th Motorized Infantry Division and in 1943 renamed the 10th Panzer
Division.
