TAMIYA Military Miniature Series No.286

About the Sd.Kfz.222
The Sd.Kfz.222 was a 4WD armored car used by the German army for reconnaissance duties. It was well-armed with a 20mm cannon and a machine gun in its open turret, which was protected from grenades and fragments by metal mesh covers. Powered by a 90hp liquid-cooled engine mounted in the rear, it was capable of a maximum road speed of 70km/h and maximum cross-country speed of 40km/h.

The famous Field Marshal Erwin Rommel's Afrika Korps used these armored cars in the North African desert for scouting and offensive operations, together with the DKW NZ350 motorcycle.
