The Sd.Kfz.234/3 chassis saw little change from the Sd.KFZ.234/2 Puma. What was changed was the superstructure and the top armored plate was removed. With the turret removed it was replaced by armor plates on all 4 sides. A new 7.5cm KwK51 L/24 short barreled main gun was installed in the open topped fighting compartment. 6 Sd.Kfz.234/3 vehicles made up a platoon of the Panzerspähwagen Company to support the SdKfz 234/1s.

The prototype was ready in 1933 but it only had a 72 HP engine and four road-wheels per side. The second prototype wasn’t any better so in 1938 the project was given to Hanomag. The company added two more road- wheels per side, changed the transmission and gave it a 100 HP engine. The demand was so great that 5 more companies were added to the production of the Sd.Kfz.11. Between 1937 and 1945 25,000 vehicles were produced in 5 variants.</p>

The M18 was the fastest tracked AFV of WWII reaching speeds up to 60 mph. The speed was possible because of the lack of heavy armour. The theory was speed would be the vehicles protection. Quite often German Panthers and Tigers would fall victim to the M18 because the German tanks turret couldn't turn fast enough to return fire. The M18 was also present in the war in the Pacific. </p>

The JS tanks were named after Joseph Stalin. The JS-2 had a 122mm D-25T main gun and 6 road wheels to improve soft ground track performance. In 1944 new specifications included new armour tempering, a 60-degree glacis replaced the 30-degree and the driver’s front hatch was removed. Also a relocated wider porthole, improved mantlet, increased lower hull side armor and a new periscope sight. The commander’s cupola moved to the left and a 12.7mm anti-aircraft machine gun attached. In 1944 2,250 JS-2’s were produced and no further improvements were made until 1954.
