Not to be taken lightly
Sd.Kfz.10 belonged to the lightest category of trucks operated by the
German forces during WWII, its compact body powered by a 100hp Maybach
HL42 engine and gearbox allowing 7 forward and 3 reverse speeds. The
result was a vehicle which was very much at home on rough terrain, had a
top speed of 65km/h and an operational range of up to 350km (on-road).
There was sufficient space in the vehicle for 2 crew and 6 passengers.
Originally developed to tow lighter weaponry such as 2cm anti-aircraft
guns, 7.5cm light infantry guns and 5cm anti-tank guns, by the end of
the war it was also hauling heavier units such as 7.5cm anti-tank guns
and 30cm rocket launchers. For the 15,000-plus Sd.Kfz.10s manufactured
between 1939 and 1944, a number of duties were assigned, in locations
including the Eastern and North African fronts.
