After we were Trianoned the country was robbed blind and plundered the army was disbanded and limited to a dozen men with sticks. Then the leadership tried to develop the defense force mostly in secret or undercover like calling some units police or civil aviation and such, equipment were smuggled into the country. In 1938 an agreement was born with the Little Entente, they accepted our equality of armament so we had a chance to rearm our army. Previously we tested foreign war material, like the Italian Ansaldo tankette thanks to limited purchasing opportunities and turned out those are shit. But in '38 other channels opened up and we saw the results of the Spanish civil war so we decided: our solders will get superior German equipment. However Germany declared they don't sell their modern up-to-date glistening weapons only the outdated crap and no panzers. We bought some stuff as it was still better then sticks and the Italian arms. Also we bought the license of Swedish and Swiss tanks and started to produce our own armored vehicles. These would have been fine at the beginning of the war but when they were deployed against the Red Army they were outdated and weak as fuck.
Thank you Germoney.
