Country: German Reich

The basic version of the medium tractor vehicle for a towed load of 8 tons had an open superstructure with 11 seats and was the most important tractor vehicle for heavy artillery and the 88 mm anti-aircraft gun. On the basis of this vehicle, self-propelled carriages with a 20 mm quad anti-aircraft gun and 37 mm anti-aircraft gun were introduced during the Second World War.
Non-armored at the beginning, the vehicles received a protective shield for the gun crew and an armored driver’s cab in the course of their production.

This vehicle has been restored by Krauss-Maffei and donated to the Verein der Freunde und Förderer der Wehrtechnischen Studiensammlung (Club of Friends and Sponsors of the Scientific Collection of Defense Engineering Specimens).
