Sd Kfz 234/2 Puma w/ 234/1 option
Schwere Panzerspähwagen (2cm) (Sd Kfz 234/1) or (5cm) (Sd Kfz 234/2)
The Sd Kfz 234 was designed as a replacement to the earlier Sd Kfz 231 and 232 eight-wheeled armoured cars.
The Sd Kfz 234/1 was fitted with a 2cm KwK 38 L/55 gun and co-ax 7.92mm MG34 machine gun in a six-sided open turret similar to that fitted to the Sd Kfz 222. The open turret was protected from grenades by a mesh-covered frame turret covers. 200 of this variant were produced from June 1944.The Sd Kfz 234/2 "Puma” was the first variant produced and was armed with a 5cm KwK 39/1 L/60 and co-ax 7.92mm MG in a fully enclosed turret. It weighed 11.74 tons. Its gun could sometimes get the crew into trouble, the crew being tempted to engage the enemy rather than breaking off. 101 were produced.
Production began in September 1943 and was halted in September 1944 when it was replaced by the other variants (Sd Kfz 234/1 2cm, Sd Kfz 234/3 7.5cm KwK, and Sd Kfz 234/4 7.5cm PaK40).
All eight wheels were both driven and steered and the Sd Kfz 234s had more armour and armament than any other German armoured car that had come before.
The Sd Kfz 234 was designed as a replacement to the earlier Sd Kfz 231/232 eight-wheeled armoured cars. They were capable of speeds up to 85 km/h (53 mph) and could cross most rough terrain.
The pack comes with the 5cm turret of the “Puma” and the 2cm armed turret of the Sd Kfz 234/1.

Marder III M
Panzerjäeger 38(t) für 7.5cm PaK40/3, Ausf M, SdKfz 138, Marder III
The first Marder III was the Marder III using the captured Russian Model 36 76.2 mm L/54.8 gun. As soon as the 7.5cm PaK 40 became available, this model was phased out of production. The Marder III Ausf H armed with the PaK 40 gun replaced it. Like its predecessor the Marder III H’s engine was positioned at the back of the vehicle, so the fighting compartment was positioned centrally. In 1942 all Panzer 38(t) production was switched to self-propelled guns. This allowed the hull layout design to be modified eliminating many of the elements required for tanks.
