Specific: A single 185 with
Danish modifications (PV M 34) procured in 1934. The
acquisition price was around 60.000 DKr. The
modifications increased the weight with 2.5 ton, and
despite a promised top-speed around 100 km/h, the vehicle
never reached more that 45 km/h.
Various modifications were made in co-operation with
Landsverk. In 1937 the engine gave up, and several
experiments to reduce weight was done, but without any
luck. Status as training-vehicle in 1939.
