General Information
Developed as a replacement armoured car for the Kfz 13/14 in 1934, the vehicle was rolled out into the German army in 1935. The vehicle was based on a standard heavy car chassis with angled armour plates to protect the crew.

The early 221 model was armed with an MG13 machine gun in an open topped turret, but on later models the MG34 in a mesh topped turret was provided.

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.
