Back to German Light Tanks


The Panzerkampfwagen 35(t), commonly shortened to Panzer 35(t) or abbreviated as Pz.Kpfw. 35(t), was a Czechoslovak-designed light tank used mainly by Nazi Germany during World War II. The letter (t) stood for tschechisch (German: "Czech"). In Czechoslovak service it had the formal designation Lehký (Light) Tank vzor (Model) 35, but was commonly referred to as the LT vz. 35 or LT-35. Four hundred and thirty-four were built; of these the Germans seized two hundred and forty-four when they occupied Bohemia-Moravia in March 1939 and the Slovaks acquired fifty-two when they declared independence from Czechoslovakia at the same time. Others were exported to Bulgaria and Romania. In German service it saw combat during the early years of World War II, notably the Invasion of Poland, the Battle of France and the invasion of the Soviet Union before being retired or sold off in 1942. It was used for the remainder of the war by other countries and as a training tank in Bulgaria into the 1950s.


A poor man's Panther, this is a great sniping tank. If positioned carefully, the front armour is very reasonable for the tier, and at the same time, it has a gun that has a high ROF, is very accurate with good penetration for the level, so you can hit weak spots on enemy tanks. The only thing to watch out for are tank destroyers and artillery. It also has good speed so it can flank enemy tanks and be even more threatening.

Side NoteEdit

This tank is the more laid back and defensive alternative to the Pz II.
