The final model of this armored car to be put into series production was the Sd.Kfz.234/4. In 1944 the German Army found itself on the verge of catastrophe, and the main objective of the Germans became defense. In order to counter the Soviet armies' numerical advantage in armored cars, it was decided to set the PaK-40 75 mm cannon, which had a formidable combat reputation, onto a few of the most suitable chassis for it, including that of the Sd.Kfz.234. In tests the Sd.Kfz.234/4 showed a too narrow sector of fire and had a limited number of rounds (36); but in general this particular model appeared to be mobile enough. By April 1945, when Germany's arms industry appeared on the verge of complete collapse because of continuous Allied bombing raids, only 89 of the Sd.Kfz.234/4 had been produced.
