Historical Review...

The purpose of this development work consisted in creation of a radically new design with ensuring the maximum possible protection for the crew while imposing vehicle weight limits.

All the crewmen were positioned in the turret where they could be better protected, with the power pack and transmission being placed at the front of the hull.

A prototype vehicle was built and tested.

Although initially the design seemed to show some promise, difficulties of ensuring simultaneous vehicle steering and firing led to its not being pursued, and development work on this ceased.
