This vehicle was popularly known as the 'Boxer' because it had an air-cooled flat-four square engine. This in turn allowed a flat sloping engine cover of quite unmistakable shape which also gave excellent forward visibility and a low silhouette. The Krupp 'Boxer' was quite ubiquitous in application and the chassis carried body work for a considerable number of different roles. Aside from its air-cooled engine, the 'Boxer' also had an independent suspension system, differing from the conventional springing systems of other six-wheelers in German service.
