A Trusty Servant
The Horch-manufactured Kfz.15 was widely used by German forces during WWII. A versatile 4WD vehicle, its well-designed chassis featured 4-wheel independent suspension, and it could carry a maximum of 4 passengers at speeds of up to 90km/h thanks to the 85hp 8-cylinder engine. In a unique design twist, its spare tires were kept on the side of the car and were able to rotate in their storage position, lending a hand should the Kfz.15 encounter rough terrain. Its production ran from 1937 to 1943, and the Kfz.15 could be seen in service in a range of locations: the Western Front, the Balkans, North Africa, and the Eastern Front. Perhaps its most significant action was in the hands of Rommel's Afrika korps, which put the sturdy and nimble vehicle to extensive use in their battle of attrition with British forces.
