In August 1943, within the Soviet Union’s Taman Peninsula.

Following the annexation of Czechoslovakia, Germany recognized the exceptional qualities of the model and chose to continue its production. This decision was motivated by the vehicle’s superior performance compared to the Panzer I and Panzer II, which constituted the core of the Panzerwaffe’s armored forces at the onset of World War II. Initially designated as the LTM 38, it was introduced into German service but was later renamed the Panzerkampfwagen 38(t) on January 16, 1940.

However, the relatively compact turret of the Panzer 38(t) could not house a cannon of sufficient power to contend with heavily armored tanks like the T-34. Consequently, production of the Pz. 38(t) ceased in June 1942 after more than 1,400 units had been manufactured. Furthermore, various other Axis nations, including Hungary (102), Slovakia (69), Romania (50), and Bulgaria (10, known as Praga), acquired additional Pz. 38(t) examples.
