General Information
The Sdkfz 263 was the first heavy armoured car developed by Germany before World War II and was based on a modified 6 x 4 truck chassis.
The vehicle had a rear driving position therefore could be driven backwards.

The 263 was unarmed but equipped with a long range bedstead radio to act as a control vehicle.

Hit Probability(%)

Hit probability is based on a static 2 x 2.4 metre panel at 0 degrees(vertical) at the range specified.

The data that has been used to create these records has come from Wikipedia, The Lone Sentry, The Bundes Archive and numerous books and websites that have provided the detailed information that has not been available anywhere else. The information we use to calculate the penetration tables, flight times and the hit probability comes from the Gun Calibre, the Shell Mass(Kg) and the muzzle velocity, plus range reductions to allow for gravity and wind resistance. This calculation originally came from a pre-war Krupp calculation which has been modified, and seems to fit the actual test results.
