1/144 Sd.Kfz 247 Ausf A - CGD

1/144 Sd.Kfz 247 Ausf A - CGD

The Sd. Kfz. 247 Ausf. A was a six-wheeled armoured car build by Krupp using the 6 X 4 chassis of Krupp Protze truck. Thinly armoured and open-topped, it was used as a command car for motorcycle divisions. Strangely they were not fitted with radios. It's cross-country capability was only as good as the Protze. Only 10 Sd. Kfz. 247 Ausf. A where built before the war started, and were superseded by the 4-wheeled Ausf. B version built by Daimler-Benz.
