History

Experimental light tank Pz.Kpfw.38 (t) n.A. was developed in 1941 by the Czech company BMM to participate in the reconnaissance tank contest for the German army. The tank was built on the chassis of the light Czechoslovak tank LT vz.38 and was distinguished by a more powerful gun, a new 8-cylinder engine, bigger wheels and wider tracks. Despite the best results in mobility trials, the tank was denied mass production due to high fuel consumption, a cramped turret and a 37 mm gun, which was considered excessive. Developments under the program Pz.Kpfw.38 (t) n.A. were further developed into light tank destroyer Jagdpanzer 38(t), also known as the Hetzer

The long-awaited replenishment of the WWII tank line-up! Meet the German experimental light tank Pz.Kpfw.38 (t) n.A., which will appear in the game with the release of the major La Royale update. The fastest representative of the Pz.Kpfw.38 series!

Pz.Kpfw.38 (t) n.A. was created according to the program of the new (n.A. - neue Art, “new type”) reconnaissance tank of the Wehrmacht. One of the conditions of the program was the requirement for the speed of the scout, at least 50-60 km/h. The tank created by BMM surpassed the army requirement - the new engine and improved chassis allowed the tank to speed up to 67 km/h.

The modified turret houses the 37 mm KwK 38(t) gun, which is already familiar to tankers from previous modifications of Czechoslovak tanks. In addition to armor-piercing shells, the gun can also fire sub-caliber shells, which will allow the tank to penetrate all light and most medium tanks at its rank, but its power is no longer enough for heavy tanks.

Thanks to its good dynamics and low profile, the tank is perfect for capturing points and scouting. Unfortunately, at rank II, one can no longer hope for armor. All tank guns here easily pierce the little Czech. The layout inside the fighting compartment is very dense, so an enemy projectile has a high chance of hitting several crew members and important modules at once.
