In January of 1937 Henschel and Sons was instructed by German military leadership to develop a heavy tank weighing 30 tons. This initial project was called Durchbruchwagen I; in parallel to this project was a project for a heavy tank weighing 33 tons called Durchbruchwagen II. Both tanks were powered by a Maybach HL 120 engine providing 35 km/h in speed. A partially complete prototype of the Durchbruchswagen 2 was made in 1938. The Durchbruchswagen 2 was intended to use the turret of a Panzer IV Ausf C.. Although the Durchbruchswagen 2 was canceled in late 1938, it would continue to be a subject of research and testing into 1941 providing valuable experience for other designs.
