Historical Reference

In the summer of 1942, Porsche received an order for a breakthrough vehicle with the most powerful armament and thickest armor possible for such a class. VK 168.01 was a further development of the Mäuschen project. The main difference was in the frontal placement of the turret. Existed only in blueprints.
