As early as 1936, Krupp began designing an armored car body, which could be mounted on Krupp 6×4 light truck type L 2 H 143 (Krupp Protze Kfz.69). Number of them was sold to Dutch East Indies Army. The original version was armed with a single MG mounted in a small but high turret. Production models were armed with three MGs, one in the front and rear hull and one in large but low turret. One of the production cars was destroyed in the grounds of the Reichstag building in Berlin in 1945.
