The le. Zgkw. 1t (Sd. Kfz. 10) Ausf. A was manufactured in series beginning in 1938. It was developed as towing vehicle for light loads like the 3.7cm Pak 35/36. Note the road wheels of the first series and the wheel hub of the driving wheel.

In mid 1940, the le. Zgkw. 1t got a strengthened rear to increase the towing capacity. The arrangement of the strengthened rear of the Ausf. B of the le. Zgkw. 1t is clearly visible on this photo. Now, heavier loads like the 7.5cm Pak 40 and the 15cm s. IG. 33 could be towed. (Photo: German federal archive via Wikimedia Commons; License: Creative Commons BY-SA-3.0-gb)
