Danish Army Specific: The new Kegresse was supposed to act as support-vehicle for a section of armoured vehicles and performed well off-road. On-road the limited speed (32 km/h) made it unable to follow the section.
It didn't perform very well on exercises in 1933 and 1934 due to a worn out engine, and a new was installed in 1935.
: The P17 was a development of the model P10. The vehicle had a boogie design, developed throughout the 1930īs, mainly for military vehicles. The new design differed from the original boogie by having the driving axle at the forward end, and equipped with sprockets. The new tracks featured metal cross-pieces and were of a sturdier design. The suspension too, was redesigned. Produced from 1929 to 1934 the model evolved from P17A to P17E respectively.
