Kradschützen, or motorcycle troopers, were a common sight in German Panzer Divisions until 1942. After this time, they had largely been replaced by Panzer grenadiers mounted in armoured vehicles. These early motorcycle troopers were often recruited from former cavalry units effectively mechanising them. Although transported on BMW and Zündapp motorcycles (usually with sidecars), these units dismounted to fight. Like cavalry, their missions were to rapidly outflank the enemy, seize forward areas and act as fast reconnaissance units.
