The Panzer-Kompanie (Fkl) 312 was formed on 9 January 1943 from a company from Panzer-Abteilung (Fkl) 302 and equiped with StuGs as control vehicles. In April 1944 became the first company of Panzer-Abteilung (Fkl) 301.

The "(Fkl)" in the name was for "Funklenk", a reference to the radio-controlled demolition vehicles used.
