The Sd Kfz. 221 was introduced as successor in 1935. As armament, the two-man crew had a MG 34 with 1,050 rounds of ammunition available in the open turret. Later, from the outbreak of war some vehicles were armed with the anti-tank rifle 39 or the 2.8-cm-heavy Panzerbüchse 41 in order to improve its combat efficiency. Furthermore, some others vehicles were equipped with a 2-cm-KwK plus a MG 34th, these vehicles were designated as Sd.Kfz. 222.
