Czech Wehrmacht tank on the Eastern Front

11

One of the reasons for the so-called Czech technological "miracle", including the military-technical component, is associated with the fact that after the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, a powerful industrial base was concentrated on the territory within the borders of modern Czech Republic. It was during the existence of Austria-Hungary that one of the largest machine-building plants in continental Europe was founded, which received its name in honor of Emil Skoda - an engineer and, as they would say now, a businessman.


As you know, during the Second World War, Czech industry actually became part of the industry of Nazi Germany. Moreover, the opinion that Czech workers worked at the enterprises of the military-industrial complex "at gunpoint" would be a big mistake. Not at all.

One of the brainchilds of the Czech military industry, which ended up in the service of the Nazis, is the LT-35 (LT vz. 35) tank. This is a light tank produced by the aforementioned Skoda plant. In 1937, it began to be used by the army of Czechoslovakia, but was much more actively used from 1939 as part of the Wehrmacht.

These Tanks used by the Nazis in the attack on the Soviet Union.

What this Czech-made tank was like, in what battles it was used on the Eastern Front, is described in a story on the Truth of Life YouTube channel:

    Unfortunately, there is nothing new, ordinary advertising and channel promotion.

        These unfinished fascists are still blackmailing the whole world that they will not sponsor the ChMH if it is held in Belarus.

      These are not rivets, I suppose, but bolts with a ball head ... from the inside a nut and a spring washer ... drinks

        The LT-35 tank was created by Skoda in 1935 under the designation S-IIa.
        <...>
        The body had a box-shaped rectangular section with a vertical arrangement of armor plates, which were connected with rivets.

      A tank is not only about armor. Cannon, optics, engine, chassis, walkie-talkie ... These are all high technologies. Some had them, while others did not.
      The article is correct and timely. This material allows you to navigate in space and time. And then such geopolitics are divorced that at least take out the saints.

    I can imagine the content of the channel with such an idiotic catchy title. And most importantly - the topic is fucking fresh and not plowed up - Czech LTshki in the Panzerwaffe. You can fucking be. laughing

    in vain you run into this YouTube channel, the author explains everything clearly in understandable language, often chewing on certain terms for the layman, such as the length of the barrel in the calibers of the gun, etc.
