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 dindīnt perform very well on exercises in 1933 and 1934 due to a worn out engine, and a new was installed in 1935.
Historical
