Building Quality & Realistic Models Since 1969
Academy 1/35 35T German Light Tank (Czech Designed) ACA13280
The Panzerkampfwagen 35(t) was a Czechoslovak-designed light tank used mainly by the Wehrmacht in World War II. The letter (t) stood for tschechisch (German: "Czech"). In Czechoslovak service, it had the formal designation Lehký tank vzor 35 (Light Tank Model 35), but was commonly referred to as the LT vz. 35 or LT-35.
Of the 434 built, the Wehrmacht seized 244 when they occupied Bohemia-Moravia in March 1939 and the Slovaks took over 52 when they declared independence from Czechoslovakia. Others were also sent to Bulgaria and Romania. In German service, the tank 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. They were used for the remainder of the war by other countries and as a training tank in Bulgaria into the 1950s.
