In the course of the development of Einheitsfahrgestellen - standard chassis - for lorries, MAN developed an Einheitsfahrgestells für mittlere Lastkraftwagen - standard chassis for middle lorries. The chassis had a load capacity of 5 tons so that a payload of 4 tons could be reahced. It had all-wheel drive and single tyre arangement on all wheels. The axial distance between the first and second axle as well as the third and fourth axle was 1100 mm. According to the designated purpose, the distance between the second and third axle was variable. A large part of the parts was idetical to the Einheitsfahrgestell für leichte Lastkraftwagen. The vehicle should be propelled by an eight-cylinder diesel engine with a power of 120 HP. It seems that only four testing chassis were made. These four chassis were converted floatable special vehicles in 1941. Two of these vehicles were equipped with a trench plough and a 40 ton cable winch. The other two vehicles had only the floatable superstructure. Equipment or other vehicles could be loaded to these vehicles by using a ramp.
