'[11PzG USMA2010']Yeah, true.

Now correct me if I'm wrong with this...

Germany annexed the Chezchs in 1935, therefore taking over their tank factories. They saw this tank and decided, 'hey this thing is cool!' So they adopted it as the Panzer 35(t), later improved to the Panzer 38(t).

Only a handful of Panzer IIIs served in France and Poland. I know the Panzer IV was built from 1939 through 1945, but how many saw action in Poland and Europe? AFAIK, not very many.

Off the top of my head, the numbers of tanks went in order like this:

Panzer II Pz 35t/38t Panzer I Panzer IV Panzer III other

There were a bunch (i think 750) of Panzer IV Ds in Poland, wherease Panzer IIIs only had about 100 in Poland. There were 700-1200 PzIIs and the same amount of 35/38ts.

Against the 35 Polish tanks, there wasn't much question of victory.

gahh I had written a reply with all the correct numbers and then I got logged out and everything was gone... anyway a short summarize, about 60 Pz38(t), 120 Pz35(t), 1000 PzI, 1200 PzII, 90 PzIII (E), 200 PzIV(B/C/D most C and then D) were used by Germans in Fall Weiss. Poland had in total about 320 tanks of various kinds (120 being crappy Ft17s). Germans brought ca 900 armored cars vs ca 200 polish armoured cars and 300 Tk3, 350 Tks, 40 Tks 20mm tankettes. you can find this on achtung panzer. Btw the rest of Czeckoslovakia (Böhmen) was annexed 1939 not 1935.
