BW (Rh-B)

History: Ordered in 1930 by the OKH.  Rheinmetall-Borsig built one prototype in competition with Krupp.  The 18t vehicle was powered by a 300PS motor which gave a speed of 35km/hr.  Steering was of the Wilson type.  Many of the features of the Rheinmetall BW were later used in the development of the Krupp BW which was mass-produced as the Panzer IV.
