Czechoslovakia / Czech Republic / Slovak Republic (CZK/CZE/SVK)
The command of the Czechoslovak army in the period shortly after the end of the Second World War preferred half-track vehicles as armored personnel carriers. However, the relatively long development of the HAKO transporter ( future OT-810 ) and the wear and tear of loot vehicles ( HKL6p ) forced the then MNO to look for other solutions.
Although the Czechoslovak Republic was able to develop remarkable weapons in the 1950s, it fell asleep somewhat in the area of armored personnel carriers. Most of the intended projects, with the exception of HAKO, remained on paper or in the stage of functional samples ( eg V3S-O ) and this sad fact was supposed to continue until the end of the 1950s.
