The Pz38 is a Slovakian made tank. And the Pz is what the Germans called it, but for the other Axis nations which used it, Slovakia, Hungary mostly called it LT-38.
LT as in Light Tank. It's one of the hand full of tanks not made by the main three Axis nations. 
Now that I've acted like a smart a** I have one thing to say.
Awesome sketch! Love it. X3

...Sorry about that buddy ^^" I'm not german but I am Japanese XD so you know...but my great grand father did fight in the eastern front with Germans, Italians, Slovakians and Rumanians. He said that they were all good warriors in their own way, I have a photo of him with  the Slovakian army with a LT-38. One reason I like this tank.

Yes. A small highly trained and ranked officers but yes there were. 
 My great grand father fought in Odessa, Sevastopol, Stallinggrad,Kursk so on and so forth until he returned home in June 1945 and then was send to the Saharan islands which the Soviet Union invaded right after Japan's surrender. 
 He still fought as self defense and somehow managed to escape numerous times as his Devision retrited island after island until the last island fell; the island of Etolofu. He then retuned to mainland Japan.

there is a movie about Korean soldiers who where drafted into the imperial Japanese army and where captured by the Russians in the northern Japanese conflict and drafted into the Russian army and fought in Stalingrad and then surrendered to Germans and fought for the Germans at the battle of Normandy. Apparently it is a true story. The Film is called My Way. It is a very good Movie.

Yeah because its armor, and ability to be mass-produced quickly, but it's gun was shit going up against Panthers and more heavier tanks. Wasn't till late war when the IS series of tanks came out in the Russian Army is when the Germans were out matched.

Gun-wise, I suppose you're right, however there's more to it than just the guns. I mean, they won Kursk without having the same caliber/type of guns and armor as the Germans...a closer range side or rear shot with a T-34/76 (not sure about the 85 mm gun, if it could maybe go through a Panther's front) could take out a Tiger, so I'm pretty sure that's what they would try to go for. Same with Shermans. And you're right the mass-producing was a plus. I heard that the T-34's frontal armor was pretty thin, but it's degree of slope equaled about the same as a Tiger's (maybe a bit less) frontal armor which was straight up.
