Product Description

The armoured draisine Tatra T18 was designed in 1925 in Czechoslovakia, in Ringhoffer-Tatra works, basing upon a chassis of a cargo draisine T14. The armoured draisine was probably developed specially for Poland, on initiative of the Polish Tatra division. Tatra draisines were used in the 1930s for training, in both Polish armoured train units. In 1939, they were used only with armoured trains Nr. 15 ("Śmierć") and Nr. 13 ("Generał Sosnkowski"). The only Czechoslovak draisine was used by the Czechoslovak Army for exercises before the war. During the German annexation of Czechoslovakia, it was captured on 15 March 1939 in a base in Milovice. At least one draisine Tatra was used in German Panzerzug 7 armoured train (in 1939-1940), then in Panzerzug 1 (until 1942).
The OA vz. 30 was a Czechoslovak-designed armored car used by Nazi Germany, Slovakia, Romania and Hungary during World War II. Fifty-one were built, of which the Germans seized twenty-four when they occupied Bohemia-Moravia in March 1939 and the Slovaks captured eighteen when they declared independence from Czechoslovakia at the same time. Slovak vehicles saw combat in the Slovak-Hungarian War, the invasion of Poland, the opening months of Operation Barbarossa and the Slovak National Uprising. The OA vz. 30's armored body was mounted on a Tatra 6 x 4 T-72 truck chassis.
Tatra is a vehicle manufacturer in Kopřivnice in Czech Republic. The company was founded in 1850 as Schustala & Company later renamed Nesselsdorfer Wagenbau-Fabriksgesellschaft, a wagon and carriage manufacturer, and in 1897 produced the first motor car in central Europe, the Präsident. Further models followed and in 1926 T23 and T24 were introduced nicknamed "bulldogs" which could be considered Tatra's precursors to COE designed trucks.
