Despite the power of its panzer divisions, Germany still didnt have the desired number of tanks at the start of WWII. To boost numbers, Germany adopted the Czech LT vz 38 tank after it had conquered Czechoslovakia. Production of this light tank continued until 1942, by which point some 1,400 vehicles had been manufactured. Indeed, the Czech design was superior to the Panzer I and II types that were so common at the beginning of the war. In German service it was known as the Pz.Kpfw.38(t), and it proved a very reliable design. Pieces are suitable for use with the Zvezda Art of Tactic expandable board game.
