Webstore: Krupp Protze heavy field car

no comments

The Krupp-Protze was a six-wheeled 6×4 German truck and artillery tractor produced between 1934 and 1941, which was heavily used during World War II. Around 7,000 units were made.

Powered by a 55 hp or 60 hp (from 1936) Krupp M 304 4-cylinder petrol engine, its main purpose was to tow artillery (in particular the PaK 36,) and transport motorized infantry.

It saw extensive used throughout the Eastern Front, the North African campaign, and in France and Sicily. The Krupp-Protze was of relatively advanced design – its fuel consumption was relatively high (24 Litres / 100 km on road) in comparison to the comparable Opel Blitz 1.5 t truck (16.5 liters / 100 km, produced 1938 – 1942).

Pack contains 1 resin and metal vehicle.
