The poor battlefield performance of A7V led to the design and development of a new tank, the lighter L.K. series, and the Oberschlesien.

Along with the lighter designs a new heavy tank was proposed under the name of Oberschlesien, or Upper Silesia.The drawings showed a very modern design for the era, with driver upfront, separate fighting and engine compartments, raised weapons in rotating turrets.
