During the defensive battles on the Eastern Front, the need for a successor vehicle on the Panzerkampfwagen IV chassis became noticeable, because the two small series of such a vehicle on the PZ.Kpfw. III were quickly used up in the summer of 1943 and the months that followed. Therefore, in the second half of 1944, corresponding development orders were placed with German industry, which then quickly ended in proposals for the "Brummbär".
