sWS (Schwerer Wehrmachtschlepper) or Heavy Armed Forces Tractor, was a simple half track vehicle developed and used by Germany from 1943 to 1945. It was designed to replace the SdKfz 6 and SdKfz 11. Initial release was unarmoured and like a lorry resembling the SdKfz 11, later versions were semi armoured and looked like the Sdkfz 251 in front with lorry like flatbed. Side and rear panels are make with wood planks. Later versions had the side panel made with metal screen and an additional storage container overhanging the rear panel. It was this version that the 37 mm Flak 43 auf sWS was developed. The side panel can lock flat horizontally so that there was more space for the gun operators to move around. Fully armoured versions were also developed to carry the Nebelwerfer 42. An improved version continued to be produced by Tatra in Czechoslovakia after the war.

2 cm Hängelafette 38: Although looked similiar to the decagonal turret desin used in the SdKfz 222 armoured car, the 2 cm Hängelafette 38 had a simplier design and featured a hexagonal design and self-contained. It was designed to simple drop into a correct sized turret hole without disassembly, as the name implied "Hanging". It was used in SdKfz 234/1, Aufklärungspanzer 38(t) (2cm) and SdKfz 251/23 Ausf D (prototype).

This 1:144 German 2 cm Hängelafette 38 auf sWS features a late armoured version sWS as used in the Panzerwefer version, armed with a 2 cm Hängelafette 38 turret.
