Panzerkampfwagen 38t - poster W.I.P.

"The 1938/39, German take-over of the Czechoslovak state resulted that in March of 1939, 150 of LT-38s in production were confiscated and CKD/Praga was ordered to complete them all. All of them were incorporated into the German Army as PzKpfw 38(t) Ausf A - Sd.Kfz.140. After the German take-over of the Czechoslovakia, the LT-38 became one of the most important tanks used by the Panzertruppe and was retained in production as a tank until June of 1942. The addition of "free" tanks provided the Panzertruppe with badly needed additional equipment in the period shortly before and in the early stages of World War II. Eventually, the proven LT-38, became base for various conversions including the Hetzer tank destroyer. As the war progressed, the Czech industry proved to be a vital part of the German war economy." - Achtung Panzer
