    Germany's first attempts at creating a heavy tank commenced in the early 1930s. Known as the Neubau-Fahrzeug (New Construction Vehicle), it was not a success, however. Slow-moving and boasting multiple turrets, it was ill equipped for the type of rapid, mobile warfare that blitzkrieg tactics required. For this reason, only five Neubau-Fahrzeug heavy tanks were built by Rheinmetall-Borsig (Rh-B). The first two prototypes were manufactured in 1934 out of mild steel so they were not suitable for combat. However, the three subsequent 25.8-ton armored tanks built in 1935 were shipped to Oslo in April 1940 and participated in the invasion of Norway. The latter trio featured a 3.7cm KwK L/45 cannon and 7.5cm KwK L/24 main gun set side by side in a turret designed by Krupp.
