Armes Antichar Tchèques

Types de Projectiles et leur Capacité de Pénétration de Blindage

Char Léger CKD/Praga LT vz.38

After l'occupation des Sudètes en 1938 par l'Allemagne, canons et véhicules tchèques capturés et confiscated became popular avec the Wehrmacht. Usines tchèques continued to produce canons et véhicules, und a free licence was given to the fabricant des véhicules blindés Landsverk suédois to build chars Skoda LT vz.38 PRAGA ou Panzer 38 (t) as les Allemands knew them. Le Panzers tchèques had better mechanical reliability than les chars légers allemands used in the 1940 campaign against France. L'armée suédoise continued to use chars PRAGA long après la guerre, et the véhicules were converted en véhicules de transport de troupes in the 1980s. Le char Panzer 38 (t) allemand may be painted in a camouflage pattern of Panzergrey avec Olive Green stripes, which was used by the Wehrmacht on the Eastern Front.

The table lists armour penetration values for canons tchèques at 0 to 100 meters range et 0 degrees inclination of armour. Dates indicate the year when a particular shell type entered production, not necessarily the year of availability to combat units. New shell types would take several months to reach the troops at the front, some favoured units receiving the new shells more quickly than others. Andrew Mark Reid is the author of Panzergranate, a set of miniature wargame rules using carefully researched gunnery data to simulate armour penetration results.

47 mm L.43 (Skoda) A.P. 86 mm
Canons Skoda de 47 mm were used by the Wehrmacht to convert chars légers Panzer I en Panzerjäger I chasseurs de chars, the first of many canons antichar automoteur. Firing obus A.P.C.R. allemands, le canon Skoda de 47 mm had 144 mm of armour penetration, significantly more than could be expected of A.P. ammunition. Les pelotons de Panzerjäger I chasseurs de chars consisted of quatre véhicules.

The Wehrmacht continued to requisition canons et véhicules tchèques, like camions Praga, et the reliable Panzer 38(t), after occupation. Panzerjäger Marder III(t) et Jagdpanzer Hetzer were tank-hunter conversions based sur le chassis du Panzer 38(t) tchèque, mounting a powerful canon antichar de 75 mm.
