Czechoslovakia

 

 

 

 

 

The Sudetenland was integrated into the German Reich in the course of the Munich Agreement on first October 1938. The forced integration of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia into the German Reich took place on 15th March 1939 after Slovakia had declared their autonomy on 13th March 1939. Besides armoured vehicles, the Wehrmacht took over many other vehicles of the Czechoslovakian armed forces. Even during the early stage of WW II, Czechoslovakian motor vehicles of all kinds played an important role in the stocks of the German Wehrmacht. Two- and three-axle commercial and military passenger cars and lorries were taken over by the German Wehrmacht. Partially, production was kept up. These were vehicles of the brands Aero, CZ, JAWA, Praga, Skoda, Tatra and WIKOV. During war, Skoda and Tatra manufactured Kübelwagen designed on German standards and Tatra developed and manufactured a new three-axle lorry.
