The chassis was lengthened to accommodate the new engine and improvements were made to the turret. The second batch was delivered from October 1943 to March 1944, principally to Skaraborgs Pansarregemente P4 in Skövde. In the event, only 104 tanks were delivered of the 122 ordered. 5cm assault gun. The Strv m/41 SI and SII tanks remained in Swedish Army service in dwindling numbers until 1957. Some were used as the basis for other self-propelled guns, but 220 were rebuilt into the Pvb 301 armored personnel carrier in 1960–63, which kept the chassis in service into the early 1970s.

Com Romania Romania license-produced the Škoda LT-35 as the R-2, and this was one of its principal tanks at the time of the invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941. The Romanian armored force was largely destroyed in the 1942 fighting that culminated in the disastrous Stalingrad campaign. The collapse of the ill-equipped Romanian Army formations was a central cause in the collapse of the Stalingrad front, and forced the Germans to reconsider their miserly arms policy. As the first stage in rebuilding the Romanian Army, the Germans began the Birnbaum Program, under which 50 worn-out PzKpfw 38(t) light tanks were shipped directly to Romanian units in the Kuban bridgehead in March 1943.

Of these, 31 were put back in running order and designated as LT-38/37, the “/37” indicating the 37mm gun. They were deployed with the 21. and 22. motorizované divize in Prague and the 3. motorizované divize in Hodonín. They remained in service into the 1950s, when they were replaced by Soviet equipment. At least two were still in service as training tanks with the Jan Žižka military school in Trocnov as late as 1959. The Czechoslovak armaments industry hoped to re-establish itself in the world export market after World War II, and the ÿKD company began offering armored vehicles for international sale.
