The Pantserwagen M 39 had a crew of five including drivers for forward and backward driving. At least one of these vehicles was destroyed during the battles in 1940. So the largest part of these vehicles was taken over by the Wehrmacht. The Pantserwagen M 39 was operated by the Wehrmacht using the designation Panzerspähwagen DAF 201 (h). Some vehicles were retrofitted with roof antennas based on German pattern.
