In 1943/44, Krupp started production of the prototype, while full-scale production was to start in mid-1945, but the end of the war cancelled any further development. It was planned to mount 170mm K 72 L/50 gun and to have a maximum armor of 30 mm.
One prototype of Grille 17 was completed in May of 1945 and was captured by British troops at Haustenbeck near Paderborn.
