Sdkfz 222 - German Light Armored Car

The mechanization of war in the early twentieth century resulted in sweeping changes. The advent of the machine gun rendered the cavalry charge ineffective. Replacing this old tactic was the invention of armored cars and tanks. These new “cavalry” units were organized into mechanized and armored divisions, often performing the same role that soldiers on horseback were once tasked with in combat: penetrating enemy lines and providing reconnaissance. The Sdkfz 222 Light Armored Car was primarily deployed for the latter purpose of providing recon for commanders and spotting enemy troops and fortified positions. It could also engage enemy troops in skirmishes, providing support to friendly infantry with its 2cm main cannon and machine gun.
