Panzer 39H is a German Tank unit.

Overview[]

Main article: Hotchkiss H35/39

The H39 was an upgraded variant of the Hotchkiss H35, introduced in 1938. It featured several modifications requested by the cavalry saddled with the original version, most importantly a more powerful 120 horsepower engine and revamped track and suspension systems, greatly improving mobility and ease of use. The most important upgrade was the long-barreled SA 38 37mm gun mounted on H-39s from January 1940, giving it excellent anti-tank capability against German light tanks.

By the time France came under attack about 1200 Hotchkiss tanks of both types were built. 550 tanks of both were captured and pressed into German service, with the H39 designated Panzerkampfwagen 38H 735(f).

Panzer Ersatz und Ausbildungs Abteilung 100 had a mixture of captured French tanks, Bef. Panzer III H and Infantry Platoons. Panzer Ersatz und Ausbildungs Abteilung 100 was a armored training battalion that supported 91. Luftlande.
