Panzer: Sdkfz 253

Sdkfz 253's  provided armoured cover and cross country mobility for artillery observers who needed to register the impact of artillery fire on enemy positions and then report the results back to Wehrmacht battery commanders. Belonging to the Sdkfz 250 family, it differed from the standard version by having a fully enclosed fighting compartment. The rationalisation of German armoured production in the second half of WWII led to the discontinuation of highly specialized vehicles like these, their tasks being taken over by simpler designs based on the Sdkfz 250 or 251.
