On July 1934 several German companies were ordered to develop a new tank with a weight up to 10 tons, having more powerful armament than that of the Panzer I. The tender for best project the company MAN won. The tank had weight of 7,9 tons, armor of 13 mm thickness, 6 cylinder engine MAYBACH HL 57 TR with power of 130 h.p. and was armed with 20mm gun KWK 30. Since spring 1936 the Panzer II began to come for Wehrmacht'tank divisions.Since March 1937 a serial production of c version has begun. It had new chassis with five track rollers of medium diameter with individual fastening. The engine power has been increased up to 140 h.p. and armor thickness up to 14,5mm. The weight of the tank has increased up to 8,9 tons.. The Panzer II of c, A, B and C versions has become the backbone of Wehrmacht tank forces in the end of 30-ties. The plants of MAN, DAIMLER-BENZ, HENSCHEL, MIAG, WEGMANN, FAMO, ALKETT produced 1113 tanks altogether till April 1940. The last, classic modification F had been produced from March 1941 till December 1942 (542 tanks) and became the base for creation of s.p.g. Marder II, Wespe and heavy 150-mm infantry gun siG 33. The Panzer II was a classic representative of the light tanks of 30-ties. The machine, which has been made in pre-war time, was reliable, fast, easily driven and corresponded completely with the strategy and plans of the Blitzkrieg. However, in the beginning of 1942 lightly armored and armed Panzer II had become obsolete and could not match enemy tanks and withstand the shells of antitank artillery. Therefore it was used further for liaison, reconnaissance, and in operations against partisans
