Motoren Gesellschaft (DMG) (Daimler Motors Corporation) was a German engineer and later automobile manufacturer, in operation from 1890 until 1926. Founded by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach .
| The Panzerwagen was designed under the supervision of Paul Daimler, the son of the famous Gottlieb Daimler and chief engineer of the Osterreichisches Daimler Motoren AG. Factory specifications included four wheel drive and a particular fully armored, fully enclosed curved body made of 3 to 3.5 mm (0.12-0.14 in) thick metal. Its other peculiarity was a dome-shaped rotating turret with 4 mm (0.16 in) of armor. The turret housed one or two machine-guns. Two versions were built, one with twin apertures and a half-open rear and the other, fully enclosed, with just a single machine-gun port. It was propelled by gasoline 4-cylinder, water-cooled, 4.41 liter engine that produced 35 hp at 1050 rpm. The driving compartment was not separated from the fighting compartment. Both the driver and co-driverТs seats were adjustable in height, and could be raised to see from over the rooftop. The field of view from inside the vehicle was quite limited, with no side slits and just two small front windows with shutters. The 4?4 chassis necessitated shafts and differentials at the front and rear. While the Austro-Daimler Panzerwagen showed some ability for climbing moderate slopes, off-road capabilities were average.
