    I'm not sure about Germany. They had less than 3,000 tanks at the start of WW2.

    ...and weren't a lot of those "Tractors" actuallu built in the Soviet Union?

    Guess your right, Notmi.

    Although I meant using batteries or pressure start or inertial start.

    Dont know about that spelling but DP is correct. Finland manufactured its own LMG, L/S-26 but it wasn't as good as DP-27.

    Well, I don't consider Mauser rifles and carabines Polish. :)
    You may arugue on that, but to me they are just german firearms. Even though they were produced (in slightly modified versions) in Poland.

    No, definitely no :)
    Some captured rifles were used by Germans but wihout doubt they were less numerous than in Polish Army.

    Not so many types of weapon left ;)

    Then it "must" be pistol. WiS vz35 "Radom" is my guess (and by now, everybody should know that I don't know anything about polish weapons).

    correct! Only 45000 of them were produced by september 1939. Then the Germans took over their production and made over 300 000 ViS pistols :)

    Finland, Great Britain. Do you count the Soviet Union as a European or an Asian country by the way?
