The Sdkfz 250 Halftrack is a fast moving light vehicle that can garrison one squad of infantry. The units stationed inside can fire out of the halftrack while benefiting from its protection.


The 250 half-track can carry one squad, but the open-top design allows garrisoned infantry to fire at nearby enemies, it cannot reinforce squads without Veterancy 1 and should primarily be used as a squad transport vehicle.
