The Sd.Kfz.265 Kleine Panzerbefehlswagen armored command vehicle was developed for the Wehrmacht Panzer Division Commanders to closely follow tanks and better coordinate them on the battlefield. This armored command vehicle was designed on the Panzer I Ausf.B light tank chassis.  To increase the space for the unit commander and his staff, the traditional rotating turret with the main armament was removed and a tall fixed superstructure was installed. The commander’s room was able to host the battle maps, the transmission and the communication systems. An additional radio antenna could be used on the hull to increase the range of radio communication.  Produced from the second half of ‘30s, the Panzerbefehlswagen was used in combat operations for the first time during the Spanish Civil War. Already considered outdated at beginning of World War II, it was assigned to signal corps and some of them were converted in ambulances.
