mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 8t (Sd. Kfz. 7) mit Holzpritsche






Commencing in November 1943, the elaborate constructed Metallaufbau - metal superstructure - was replaced by a simple flatbed made of wood. At first, the standard Metallfahrerhaus - metal driver’s cab - was still used.









A simplified Holzfahrerhaus - wooden driver’s cab - was used commencing in 1944. There were three different designs of the sides of the driver’s cab. In the photo, a version with short bevel is visible. In addition, there were versions with a long bevel and with a rounded profile. The illustrated photo was made in November 1944.









This known photo of a conclusion model of the Sd. Kfz. 7 was made in March or April 1944. The simplified rear superstructure is clearly visible. The vehicle was used as towing vehicle for a 15 cm sFH18. (Photo: German federal archive via Wikimedia Commons; License: Creative Commons BY-SA-3.0-gb)









The illustrated vehicle in this photo, which was captured by the Allies, has some interesting details. The sides of the driver’s cab are of the rounded design. The Rack for the equipment of the crew and the ammunition was still present while the crew benches were missing. (Photo: NARA)
