Due to its inadequate towing performance, Germany ceased production of the 5-ton Sd.Kfz. 6 half-track and mounted the 3.7cm AA gun onto the 8-ton Sd.Kfz. 7 halftrack to create the Sd.Kfz. 7/2 anti-aircraft half-track. Initially, the vehicle featured a 3.7cm Flak 36 but this made way for the 3.7cm Flak 37 in the later stages of the war. Overall, 123 Sd.Kfz. 7/2s were produced and in addition to deployment with Luftwaffe anti-aircraft units, they were also armed with the 3.7cm Stielgranate 41 and used in the anti-tank role.
