The successful project L-60 was taken as a basis, the linear dimensions of which became larger. The combat weight increased to 15 tons, and the crew to 5 people. The first sketches appeared in 1936. The tank was planned to be armed with an Austrian 47 mm Böhler M35 anti-tank gun and Schwarzlose M. 07/12 heavy machine guns. The thickness of the armor in the frontal part was about 34 mm. Initially, with the designation LAGO was prepared for the Austrian army. With the same weapons, they were later going to deliver it to Hungary, but none of the deals took place.
