The "Stier," as it has been nicknamed, is the German Army's primary IFV (infantry fighting vehicle).
As an IFV, the Sd.Kfz. 300 is used in battle by panzergrenadiers in supporting the panzers of the Heer's many panzer divisions. The panzergrenadiers eliminate threats to the panzers that the panzers are unable to- most often enemy infantry, anti-tank crews, etc. It is also used by the front-line infantry of the panzer divisions or supporting infantry divisions as an IFV to fight alongside the infantry as they capture their objective.
This image displays the optional APS defense turret that uses a highly advanced autonomous computer system to shoot down incoming enemy projectiles. However, the APS computer is installed on all Sd.Kfz. 300s whether they have the APS turret installed or not. The computer simply uses the 30mm "Stummel" turret instead, overriding any action being taken in the turret at the time.
The Sd.Kfz. 300 also incorporates the Federal Armed Forces Network, a wireless internet network for the communications of all the armed forces of Prusso-Egypt. It is accessed via a touch-screen command interface in the cabin of the vehicle. All vehicles in the armed forces of Prusso-Egypt have a type of this universal command interface.
The Kaiser and I are very proud of the work produced by our designers and those of Hanomag, the famous half-track company. The infantry fighting vehicle is a key part of any real fighting force, especially for Germany, and it will continue to be so for quite the time. This vehicle is an excellent example of one, and will serve with the Reich in glory for many years to come.
