Krupp Protze Kfz 69/70 6x4 Artillery Tractor / Utility Truck

The L2 H43 and L2 H143 Krupp-Protze (unofficial designation) 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 (Kfz 69), especially the PaK 36 anti-tank gun, and transport motorized infantry Kfz 70.

These vehicles were extensively used on the Eastern Front, during the North African campaign and in France and Sicily. The Krupp-Protze was of relatively advanced design, though its fuel consumption was relatively high at 24 liters / 100km on road in comparison to the Opel Blitz trucks (16.5 liters / 100km) which was produced between 1938 and 1942. Total production was about 7,000 units.
