At the outbreak of the war Hungary looked to Czechoslovakia for medium tanks to equip its army but Skoda and CKD were already committed to producing tanks for the German army. Instead, Skoda provided the plans and manufacturing rights to its S-IIr design and this was produced in Hungary, with modifications, as the 40M Turan I tank. A later up-gunning of this vehicle from a 40mm to a 75mm gun produced the 41M Turan II tank.
