The production of the Turán II was ordered in 1941. It had a short 75 mm MÁVAG gun and the frontal armor was upgraded from 50 mm to 60 mm. The first three Turán II's were delivered to the troops on May 13-15 1943. During the war about 350 TuránI I's and II's were produced. The Turán became the main battle tank of Hungary, but they proved to be inadequate opponents of the Soviet tanks.
