The Sd.Kfz. 234 was a family of armoured vehicles developed and built in Germany during World War II. The first and most famous version, the Sd.Kfz. 234/2, was equipped with a turret featuring a 5-cm KwK 39/1 tank gun and a coaxial MG 42.

This armament was originally intended for the VK 1602 Leopard, a planned tank in the Panzer II class. The switch to this armament was documented on July 1, 1942, and on November 2, 1943, the production of 100 vehicles with this equipment was announced. A total of 101 vehicles were manufactured between December 1943 and June 1944. The designation Sd.Kfz. 234/2 was used from March 1944.

This version of the Sd.Kfz. 234, with its relatively strong armament for a reconnaissance vehicle, often tempted crews to engage in combat instead of just performing reconnaissance tasks.
