Comparing: Cruiser Mk. III vs. Pz.Kpfw. 35 (t) vs. Pz.Kpfw. I
The vehicle was developed on the basis of the M1931 Christie tanks, purchased by the British Army in 1936. The vehicle was intended to be a fast, lightly-armored breakthrough tank. The modified design was deemed successful and became the basis for other cruiser tanks. A total of 65 vehicles were built. They saw combat in France and North Africa in 1940–1941.
Developed by Škoda in 1935, the vehicle saw service in the Czechoslovakian army under the designation LT vz. 35. During the occupation of Czechoslovakia, the captured tanks were redesignated as Pz.Kpfw. 35 (t) and deployed with the Wehrmacht. The vehicles were actively used by the 1st Light Division (the 6th Panzer Division after reorganization) until the late 1941. A total of 434 tanks were manufactured.
The Pz I Ausf. A was the first mass-produced German tank. In 1935 the design received an upgrade, including elongated hull and a more powerful engine. Mass production of this version, the Pz I Ausf. B, eventually totalled 675 tanks. The standard armament was weak, but some tanks were upgraded on the battlefield to mount 20-mm guns.
