The original Pz.Kpfw.II dates back to the early 1930's and was intended as a small reconnaissance tank for the new Panzer Divisions. The PzKpfw II Ausf L was the last of the series and was a complete re-design from earlier models. It featured a new suspension with interleaved road wheels, improved engine and 6-speed transmission. It was the largest and fastest tank in the series with a road speed of 58km/h. It was named the Luchs (Lynx) and was built from September 1943 to January1944 by MAN and Henschel. Of the 800 tanks ordered, only 100 were built, with another 4 converted from Ausf M hulls. Armament remained the same as on earlier models, though the 20mm cannon now obsolete. Most Luchs saw action on the Eastern Front until the end of the war. The Luchs was to have been replaced by the larger VK1602 Leopard armed with a 50mm gun, but excessive weight caused its cancellation.
