mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 8t (Sd. Kfz. 7) Typ KM m 11 & HL m 11






The conclusion model KM m 11 entered serial production in 1937. Note the Krauss-Maffei logo on the radiator grille. The running gear was lengthened by adding two additional pairs of road wheels compared to the predecessor models. The whole design of the vehicle was reworked, too.









The Sd. Kfz. 7 was the standard towing vehicle for the 8.8 cm Flak. This 8.8 cm Flak 18 was towed by a HL m 11 which was made by Borgward under license. Note the Borgward logo on the radiator grille. The HL m 11 designation was a remnant of the company Hansa-Lloyd.









The Metallaufbau - metal superstructure - was reworked late in 1941. The handles on the sides of the body were now integrated into the body work. A stowage rack was now attached to the rear of the body.

At least one body manufacturer introduced a simplified Metallaufbau in 1943. The lower edge of the body was now straight over the whole length. The hatch for the spare wheel was omitted.
