NotesThe Lynx was the last in the line of Pz Mk. II family. It had torsion bar suspension along with five overlapping road wheels and a crew of four. It was a very compact vehicle and had a larger turret then the other marks. It still retained a 20mm canon and coaxial MG34 and was used like the previous models as a reconnaissance tank.
