The Pz.Kpfw. 38(t) light tank was developed before the beginning of World War II. The initial design belonged to Czech engineers, but after the German occupation of Czechoslovakia the tank was included in the German combat arsenal.

Being a pre-war designed tank, the Panzerkampfwagen 38(t) had common features of the tanks from that period, such as riveted armour and a rear engine. Still some changes were made by the Germans, with increased armour thickness and a loader position added to the turret being the main ones.

The tank saw active service during the military incursion into Poland, France and the Soviet Union, but it became obsolete in 1942 for it no longer proved effective on the battlefield. However, the Pz.Kpfw. 38(t) served as a prototype for the Marder III and partly for the Jagdpanzer 38 tank destroyers.

The Pz.BfWg 38(t) was a command tank also originated from Czechoslovakia and used by the German Army during World War II. It was equipped with a radio station and a frame antenna. The total of 300 Pz.BfWg's were produced.
