leichter gepanzerter Munitionstransportwagen (Sd. Kfz. 252)






Serial production of the le. gp. Munitionstransportwagen (Sd. Kfz. 252) – an armoured ammunition carrier - started in June 1940. It was officially introduced with the Kft. Anhang No. 42 of the A.H.M. 1940, Blatt 13 from 7th June 1940. In total 413 exemplars were made until September 1941. The superstructure had a closed roof. The rear of the vehicle was very angular. After production ended, it was replaced by the Sd. Kfz. 250/6.









The angular rear of the armoured superstructure is clearly visible in this photo. Later, some of these vehicles were converted to armoured radio vehicles. (Photo: German federal archive via Wikimedia Commons; License: Creative Commons BY-SA-3.0-gb)
