Description

Battles of the Eastern front in 1941 have revealed complete helplessness of light machine-gun tanks in conditions of war with Russia. As commanders of one of the tank groups said, the tank equipped with a gun of less than 75 mm calibre had no chances to survive on the Eastern front.

In 1942 the tank models Pz.IA and Pz.IB had been withdrawn from the arsenal. Part of those machines was re-equipped into ammunition transporters (Munitionsschlepper). Turrets were dismounted, and welded metal boxes of simple shape opened on the top were mounted instead. It is known, for example, that 12 such machines operated at Leibstandarte SS “Adolf Hitler”.
