.: Phil Kangur's 1/72nd ADGZ Armoured Car

Developed as a heavy armoured car for the Austrian Army from 1934 and delivered from 1935-37. A production series was considered. When Germany occupied Austria during "Anschluss" in 1938, they obtained 27 of these units from the Austrian Army (12 ADGZ road-tanks were part of the Austrian Army as of March 1938, all in the Fast Division, while 14 were part of the police and gernarmerie which makes 26 - where the extra one came from described before is simply a dispute between my sources). The PzKpfw Steyr ADGZ Armoured Cars were assigned to Police detachments and SS units. In 1941, the SS ordered an additional 25 ADGZ. Delivered in 1942, they entered service in Russia and the Balkans. An interesting feature of this vehicle was that there was no "rear". Either end was capable of driving the unit.
