The vehicle was operated by five men crew composed of commander, gunner and loader in the turret and driver along with machine gunner / radio-operator in the front part of the hull.The communication between the crew was by the use of the intercom.Krupp concentrated on the development of the turret while MAN worked on the running gear – VK 2001(MAN).All vehicles had similar characteristics but after extensive tests Krupp’s design – VK 2001(K) was selected to enter full-scale production. In 1935, Krupp after receiving order to produce its design, modified it by incorporating best features of existing designs.Specifications required overall weight to be 18 ton, top speed of 35km/h and 75mm gun as main armament.
