Prevented by the treaty of Versailles from owning or utilizing armored tanks. Germany skirted the restrictive treaty by producing 15 tank hulls without superstructures, turrets or weaponry. To spread experience with armored fighting vehicles as far as possible, five companies were selected in 1933 to produce 3 vehicles each. The official German designation “Landwirtschaftlicher Schlepper” helped disguise the fact that armored vehicles were being manufactured.
Designed as a training vehicle, the turretless Krupp Traktor was not intended for combat. In the spring of 1934, it was issued to the first two panzer regiments, Kraftfahrlehrkommando Zossen und Ohrdruf so German troops could experience driving a fully-tracked armored vehicle. Krupp-Gruson-werk was awarded a contract to overhaul these vehicles into military training vehicles by adding a rail to the hull of the vehicle.
