Its armament consisted of a 75mm gun, a 37mm gun in a single gun mantlet, and there was a machine gun turret (identical to the one used on the Pz I) in front of the main gun turret, with one more behind.
The vehicle weighed in around 25 tons, and it could attain a reasonable speed (for 1930s) of 16 mph. A few even saw combat in Norway, even though they were little more than mild steel design studies. Its biggest flaw was the doctrine that controlled it.
I've been reviewing the design, and it had potential. In my personal analysis, it would compare favorably to Panzer III & IV.
