Panzerkampfwagen 35(t) – Light Tank


The original Czechoslovakian light tank was a Škoda developed CKD LT vz. 35 tank. After Germany annexed Czechoslovakia they took over the armies arsenal with the CKD LT vz. 35 and the CKD LT vz. 38 light tanks. Both were used in the German Panzer divisions but were outdated in the early war years. Both light tanks were transformed into multiple versions and roles, the CKD LT vz. 38 or Panzerkampfwagen 38(t) is well known as the successful tank destroyer Jagdpanzer 38(t) – Hetzer. The Panzerkampfwagen 35(t) or Pz.Kfw. 35(t) had 15 to 25mm armor with two 7,92mm machineguns and one 3,7cm Kwk L/40 gun.
This Panzerkampfwagen 35(t) is part of a Czechoslovakian armored train. Photographed in Utrecht – Netherlands.
