Panzer Tracts No.22-2 – Leichter Zugkraftwagen 3t book
For the first time the design evolution of the le.Zgkw. 3 t (Sd.Kfz.11) can be correctly told. Hundreds of hours were spent precisely measuring surviving le.Zgkw.3 t (Sd.Kfz.11) and associated components and over a thousand hours were spent in creating detailed drawings of the basic le.Zgkw.3 t (Sd.Kfz.11). Additionally, the associated variants le.Zgkw.3 t (Sd.Kfz.11) mit Pritschen-Aufbau, Raketenwagen for rescuing the shipwrecked, Sfl. (Sd.Kfz.11/1) mit 2 cm Flak 38, Nebelkw. (Sd.Kfz.11/1), m.Entg.Kw. (Sd.Kfz.11/2), Nebelkw. (Sd.Kfz.11/4), and s.Nb.W.Kw. (Sd.Kfz.11/5) are covered. Exciting new finds include six distinctly different open-top driver’s cabs (some with truncated shaped windshields) on the Sd.Kfz.11 through Sd.Kfz.11/5 and the correct identification of the le.Zgkw.3 t (Sd.Kfz.11) mit Mannschaftsaufbau (previously misidentified as a Pionier-Aufbau). This book is packed with new information on the history, development, production, unit organisation, and wartime reports. Following the authors’ high standards, the text and data are based solely on primary sources.
