The Ehrhardt E-V/4 Straßenpanzerwagen was an early armored car design of German origin. The vehicle weighed 9 tons, and was armed with 3 machine guns - one mounted within a rotating turret. With around 50 built, this was Imperial Germany's most-produced armored vehicle of World War I.
The first Ehrhardts were ordered in 1915 after seeing first hand the battlefield potential of the armored car, used by their opposition during the invasion of Belgium. However, their use was limited on the Western Front due to the stalemate. On the terrain of the Eastern Front, they served better, but ultimately had little impact due to their few numbers. Domestically, the Ehrhardts excelled as riot-control vehicles, and were used as such up until the breakout of World War II.
