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 was Commander-In-Chief of the Luftwaffe but wanted to be part of the land
victories as well. To do this Goring created an elite Luftwaffe armoured 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 armoured vehicles. The Sd.Kfz.7 was probably the most in demand vehicle to
haul the heavy 8.8 cm Flak gun and up to 12 gun crew.
