The LWS was basically a motor tug built with tracks powered by a Maybach HL120 V12 engine, the LWS could achieve 35km/hr on road and 12km/hr in water with a total weight was 17 tons and accommodation for three crew and up to 20 soldiers.

The seven pre-production LWS vehicles were extensively tested for amphibious assault across the English Channel. Testing showed that they could only be used in calm in-shore waters and the lack of armour protection was also a concern. When Operation Sea Lion (the invasion of Great Britain) was cancelled early in 1941 the LWS project was also ended but the LWS did serve in Russia and was employed during river crossings.
