Germany created a number of successful schwerer Panzerspahwagen ("heavy armored reconnaissance vehicles") to support its forces. In fact, a whole family of vehicles was based on the Sd.Kfz.231 8-Rad ("eight-wheel") design. This type of heavy armored car was ordered in 1934, and one of its special features was its chassis that featured 8-wheel drive and 8-wheel steering for good cross-country mobility. There were dual driver's controls, which meant the vehicle could drive rapidly in either direction if it came under attack. The 8.3-ton Sd.Kfz.231 was built from 1936 through till May 1942, with some 607 vehicles produced in all (including the closely related Sd.Kfz.232). The Sd.Kfz.231 had a hexagonal-shaped turret mounting a 2cm KwK 30 cannon plus one MG34 machine gun.
