After WWI, Germany pushed forward with the development of battle tanks under a veil of secrecy. The Panzerkampfwagen II used the Panzerkampfwagen I"s hull and came armed with a 2cm main gun. Mass production began in 1937 and various improvements including a new suspension was made. Approximately 1088 Panzerkampfwagen II Ausf.A-C tanks were manufactured up until April 1940. The Panzerkampfwagen II led the surprise attack on Poland and smashed their way throughout Europe. They were later replaced by better frontline tanks but were successfully used in reconnaissance missions until the end of the war.
