The Czechoslovakian KH50 Wheel and Track Tank

The Czechoslovakian KH50 Wheel and Track Tank

Czechoslovakian firm Skoda had been following the developments of the US Christie Tanks through out the 1920’s and 1925 they built two prototypes of a light tank which could run on either tracks or wheels designated the KH50.

The vehicle had a small one man turret mounting a 37mm Main Gun on top of a riveted constructed hull, which had a sloped front. The vehicle was not adopted by the former Czech Army and failed to enter serial production.
