Krupp Protze Kfz 69/70 6x4 Truck

Artillery Tractor / Utility Truck

 The L2 H43 and L2 H143Krupp-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 (designated Kfz 69) especially the PaK 36, and transport motorized infantry (Kfz 70).

 This vehicle was extensively used on the Eastern Front, during the North African campaign and in France and Sicily.  The “Krupp-Protze” was of relatively advanced design although its fuel consumption was relatively high (24 liters / 100km on road) in comparison to the Opel Blitz 1.5 t trucks (16.5 liters / 100km on road) which was produced between 1938 and 1942.  Total production was about 7,000 units.
