The Adler Kfz. 13 was the first light armored reconnaissance car designed and built for the German army. The Kfz. 13 was also referred to as the maschinengewehrkraftwagen was produced between 1932 and 1934 with a total of 147 units being built. This was a lightly armored open top vehicle with 8mm of armor protecting the crew of two. The Kfz. 13 was armed with either a 7.92mm MG13 or later with an MG34. The gun could traverse 360 degrees. The Kfz. 13 was based on the Adler Standard 6 automobile and the armored body was built by Deutsche Edelstahlwerke AG in Hannover-Linden. The vehicle had a top speed of 80 km/h (50 mph) on the road and a range of 300 km (186 miles). However, the 2 wheel drive automobile origin resulted in poor cross-country performance. The Kfz. 13 saw action in the Polish campaign as well as in France. By 1941 most of the Kfz. 13 had been replaced by the Sd. Kfz. 221/222 series of vehicles. The Kfz. 14 or Funkkraftwagen was an unarmed radio variant equipped with a foldable antenna and long range radio. Only 40 of this variant was produced.
