The 38M Toldi was produced and developed under license from Swedish company AB Landsverk between 1939 and 1942. Only 202 were produced.
- Toldi I (k.hk. A20) - first variant armed with 20 mm gun, 80 made.
- Toldi II (k.hk. B20) - variant with thicker front armour, 110 made.
- Toldi IIa (k.hk. B40) - modification developed in 1942, armed with 40 mm gun - 80 tanks of earlier variant were rearmed this way.
- Toldi III (k.hk. C40) - improved variant, only 12 made.
Toldi tanks entered Hungarian service in 1940. They first saw action with the German Army against Yugoslavia in 1941.
These tanks were mostly used against the USSR between 1941-1944. Because of their light armour, armament and good communications equipment, they were mostly used for reconnaissance. The design was no match against Soviet T-34 medium tanks.
