War Park 2023-08-22 12:20



The SdKfz 234 / 2, often referred to as the "Puma", was a famous variant of the SdKfz 234 series of armored vehicles used by the German Army during World War II. It was specifically designed for reconnaissance and combat purposes and is highly regarded for its outstanding performance on the battlefield.  The Puma has the most firepower of all German armored vehicles, and its off-road performance is excellent, which makes the car a daunting combat vehicle.



The Puma is equipped with a powerful 50mm KwK. L / 60 gun​. This gives it great firepower against armor and soft targets.​​​ ​​At the same time, a MG 34 coaxial machine gun was supplemented to increase the vehicle's versatility and anti-infantry capabilities.​Another notable feature of the Puma is its fully enclosed turret, which provides excellent protection for the crew. The turret can be rotated 360 degrees, allowing the gunner to quickly attack the target from any direction.​ In addition, the vehicle has a relatively low profile and sloped armor, enhancing its defense capabilities.



Thanks to its advanced suspension system and powerful engine, the Puma is very agile and has impressive maneuverability over a variety of terrains.  Its maximum speed on the highway is about 90 km/h, and its cross-country performance is very good, making it suitable for reconnaissance missions that require speed and maneuverability. In terms of reconnaissance capabilities, the Puma is equipped with advanced optics, including periscopes, telescopic sights and distance measuring instruments, which enables the crew to effectively observe and assess the battlefield.  It also has a radio communication systems that enables it to relay critical information to the command center.



The Puma's combination of speed, firepower and reconnaissance capabilities makes it a powerful asset to the German army during World War II. Throughout the war it played an important role in gathering intelligence, engaging enemy forces and supporting German panzers on all fronts.


This month, War Park unveiled the snow-painted Puma eight-wheeled heavy armored vehicle.
