Panzer Sdkfz 250/10 "Neuer art"
In late 1943 the design of the Sdkfz 250 was changed to simplify production and the number of armour plates making up the hull was reduced from nineteen to just nine.This new line of vehicles were known as the "neuer art" or just "neu". The Pak 37 mounted on the roof was hardly a potent anti tank weapon by 1943, but it could still deliver some extra bite against armored cars and light skinned vehicles and this version of the 250 was often used by unit commanders.Note the tactical sign of a motorized (but not half-tracked) unit painted on the front armourplate.

Tactical sign denotes Panzerspähwagen Kompanie- armored reconnaissance company. That units often used light tanks, armored halftracks and armored wheeled vehicles.
