The Panzer II Ausf L (Luchs) is a German light tank from the Second World War, developed between 1940 and 1942 by Daimler-Benz and MAN. The Luchs was the only Panzer II design with the Schachtellaufwerk overlapping/interleaved road wheels and “slack track” configuration to enter series production, with 100 being built from September 1943 to January 1944.

Of the original 100 Panzer II Luchs, there are only 2 surviving today, one of which was at Bovington.

Here is the Panzer II Ausf L next to the huge Tiger II.
