Krupp-Protze Truck Early War Grey Variant towing a Pak 36 cannon--single 6x4 German truck/artillery tractor with driver and Pak 36 cannon
Following the success of the TGM Camo Version [which quickly sold out] and numerous requests for these uniquely designed WWII multiple use Axis Truck, we have release three options, all in Grey, weathered, with 3 different drivers, so collectors can create their own ‘Protze Convoy’. Our previously released SS sitting figures work perfectly with these new trucks. The L2 H43 and L2 H143 Krupp-Protze was a six-wheeled 6x4 German truck and artillery tractor produced between 1934 and 1941 and heavily used in World War II. It was powered by a 4-cylinder, 55hp or from 1936 a 60hp Krupp M304 petrol engine. Its main purpose was to tow artillery, especially the PaK 36, and transport motorized infantry. Total production was 7,000 vehicles. The Krupp Protze was extensively used on the Eastern Front, during the North African campaign and in France and Sicily. The Krupp-Protze was of relatively advanced design; however, its fuel consumption was relatively high (24 liters/100km on road) in comparison to the Opel Blitz 1.5 t trucks (16.5 liters/100km on road), which was produced between 1938 and 1942. Limited to 40 in numbers.
