The 38M Toldi was a Hungarian light tank, based on the Swedish Landsverk L-60B tank. It was named after the 14th century Hungarian knight Miklós Toldi. Toldi tanks had good movement abilities, highly sloped armor and very good optical instruments for observation and fire guidance. A 20mm gun and an 8mm machine gun were standard. Its 155hp engine was manufactured in Germany. The tank was named 38M Toldi. Modifications were made to this model due to its weak performance on the battlefield. Toldi tanks entered Hungarian service in 1940. They first saw action with the Hungarian Army against Yugoslavia in 1941. These tanks were mostly used against the USSR between 1941-1944. Because of their light armour, armament and good communications equipment, they were mostly used for reconnaissance. The design was no match against Soviet T-34 medium tanks encountered during the early stages of Operation Barbarossa.
