8-Wheeled Mayhem
The German Sd.Kfz.234/2 "Puma" is rated as one of the most fearsome armored cars to hit the battlefields of WWII. It was one of four Sd.Kfz.234 variants which followed in the footsteps of predecessor Sd.Kfz.234/1; developed from August 1940 onwards, the Puma had a hard-as-nails monocoque form which packed a mighty punch with its 5cm KwK 39/1 gun and 7.92mm machine gun mounted on the rotating turret. Its capabilities went much further, however, an 8-wheel drive, 8-wheel steering system providing top class mobility and the 210hp diesel engine propelling the Puma at up to 80km/h. Great stamina was exemplified by an impressive range of 1,000km. Production was limited to just 100 units between December 1943 and September 1944, but the Puma sprung up on both the Western and Eastern fronts to terrorize opponents as a hard-hitting reconnaissance vehicle.
