In early 1935 Adolf Hitler visited the army ordnance proving ground, located at Eummersdorf. Watching the impressive display of the panzers excited and pleased him.
The Fuhrer turned to Guderian and said, That is what I need, that is what I want to have...
"The Germans didn't show the world how to build tanks. It showed the world how to use them.


The Panzer I was a training tool, and could also be used in the reconnaissance roll and that of infantry support.

The vehicle was also under-armed with 2 x 7.92mm MG 34 machine guns. and a crew of two, its armor was not able to withstand anti-tank weapons of the day. However, it was small and fast with enough speed to be able to move around the battlefield.
As the war continued, the Panzer I chassis was modified to carry howitzers and anti-tank guns.
