The Selbstfahrlafette - self propelled gun - (Sd. Kfz. 7/2) for the 3,7cm Flak 36 was made commencing in 1942. It was based on the chassis of the m. Zgkw. 8t. At first, the vehicles had no armour protection except the armoured shield of the gun.

About 1,000 exemplars of the Sd. Kfz. 7/2 were made. The dropsides were made of wood towards the end of war. Rarely these vehicles were armed with a 3.7cm Flak 43 in place of the 3.7cm Flak 36. This Sd. Kfz. 7/2 towed a Sd. Ah. 57. Additional equipment and ammunition was transported with this trailer.
