The armoured SS panzergrenadiers and their reconnaissance company brothers had a lot in common, being fanatically tough infantry mounted in armoured half-tracks. The real difference came in the form of their transport. While the panzergrenadiers fought from their big Sd Kfz 251 half-tracks, the reconnaissance company were mounted in the smaller, stealthier Sd Kfz 250 half-track. Its smaller size meant that they needed twice as many to carry a platoon, but that also meant that they had twice as many machine-guns when they needed them.
