The post-WW1 Treaty of Versailles imposed onerous restrictions on the German military. Their Navy was to be surrendered to the Allies; instead the German sailors scuttled their ships at Scapa Flow.

The production of tanks and armored cars was also forbidden. The goal was to keep Germany from building a military capable of offensive operations.
