In early 1935, Waffenamt ordered Rheinmetall-Borsig to develop 37mm L/70 self-propelled gun. It was to be mounted in a new vehicle based on the chassis of 3-ton Hansa-Loyd-Goliath Zugkraftwagen. Armament consisted of 37mm L/70 gun and two 7.92mm MG 34, mounted in a turret. Only single prototype was produced in late 1936 and was extensively tested by the cavalry units.
