Brief history
The Austro-Hungarian military administration found its fleet insufficiently equipped with vehicles of 3 ton capacity. In early 1911, a competition for the design of a car train was announced. The first Czech-Moravian engineering company entered a product of its car factory into the competition. The chief designer was František Kec, who joined Pragovka on 1 April 1911 and immediately started work on the military car project. He drew up designs, which the designers traced in detail. The twenty-eight year old enthusiastic young man negotiated with modellers, founders, blacksmiths, ran from devil to devil, introduced new working methods. The factory produced parts for the construction of three cars - two were assembled and the third remained in parts as a reserve. From the young designer's arrival at the factory to the realization 194 days passed. The factory was not enthusiastic about the cars, because the condition was a kerb weight of only 3 t. The chief designer Kec did not meet the requirement, because after the vehicles were assembled and transported, the Praga V turned out to weigh 3.5 tonnes. This upset Director Havranek, who feared that the vehicles would not be admitted to the competition. Therefore, chief designer Kec was sent to Vienna with the vehicles to enjoy the possible embarrassment on the spot. The two Prags made the journey to Vienna on 11 October. 13 vehicles arrived for test drives, including two Prags. There was no weight overrun shame, as apart from the Swiss Berna, most of the vehicles reached or exceeded 4 tonnes. And then when one of the Pragovkas loaded 5 tons instead of the prescribed 3 tons, the faces of the representatives of the other brands were stretched.


Another advantage was given to the Praha vehicles by an incident at the beginning of the competition, when a column of tested vehicles arrived at a semi-dry riverbed, which all the cars had to cross. The vehicles driving in front of the Prags got stuck in the middle of the river in the mud. The two Prags were the last to reach the river, and Kec had the loaded trailers disconnected from their cars and sent the cars alone into the riverbed. The moment their wheels began to spin and dig in, the drivers were told to stop. The recovery ropes were then extended and secured, and with their help the two Prag cars drove to the other bank. The loaded trailers and finally the competitors' cars were then pulled over.


After the test runs of the 7th Lithopad were completed, the technical design of the Praga vehicles was duly appreciated when the Austro-Hungarian Army ordered the first 18 vehicles with trailers. The company's success in the competition also persuaded the representative of the Hungarian Wagon Factory in Rab to purchase a licence. The purchase price of the vehicle with trailer was K16,500 and the army paid 50% of the price to the buyer. By the end of the year Praga Automobilka managed to produce and deliver vehicles to the civil sector, e.g. to a. s. Pražské mlýny and Waldes & spol.
