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 Sd.Kfz. 7 SS-924015 belonged to the SS Leibstandarte and wore the name Marta. The SS
Leibstandarte was founded in 1933 as a bodyguard unit for Adolf Hitler. Over time the unit grew
and in 1939 became a separate unit of the Waffen SS. The SS Leibstandarte took part in the
invasion of Poland and Operation Barbarossa. By the end of WWII the unit had grown from a
regiment to a Panzer Regiment and by 1945 a complete armored division. In 2017 SS-924015
was seen at the War and Peace Revival at Hop Farm, Kent, UK.
