    Ups, Sorry did not know that. I don't speak either language (though I am usually able to understand dutch, as it sound pretty much like very drunken German)

    That would be the Hetzer, IIRC in Swiss service?

    Pz-38(t) and its offsprings - Hetzer among them . Swiss used it AFAIK to the 70-s , and Swedish m42 light tank at least to the 60-s . Ironically the best of all much touted german panzers was actually of Czech origin . Not the best as tank of course , but as chassis .

    your question .

    That's cheating. The Pz-38(t) wasn't a German tank at all. It was made by Czehoslovakia. Germany captured them during the annexation. It's like counting Russian T-34s in German service, or T-26s in Finnish service, as as Finnish or German tanks.

    not cheating , it was not in service by the time Germans came in . It went into production after that .
    The first Moskvich 400 was pre-war Opel Kadett , first Bristols were copies of BMW etc. etc . Still considered Soviet and British cars .

    Longest serving pure German design was the Stug III which remained in Finnish service until 1966. Or the Mk IV and V which was still in Austrian service as border emplaced strong points into the 1980's IIRC.

    BT-2 M1931?

    Feanor the Polish 7TP was based on the British 6 ton Vickers not the Christie design.

    Really? I was under the impression that the overall designs, besides the suspension, were rather similar. Well anyways is it my turn?
