I found a Wikipedia page about a Romania tank known as the R3, the succesor of the LT vz. 35(pz 35(t)/R2). It seems that Romania ordered around 250 of them in 1940 (along 350 R2 tanks)but Germany never agreed to produce them. What if Romania somehow managed to build/obtain at least 150 of them until June 1941, in ordere to be able to join the fight against the Soviets.

Vážený pane,
v roce 1940 v Rumunsku proběhly výběrové zkoušky nového středního tanku. Soutěže se účastnil T-21 (Škoda) a V8H (BMM, ex ČKD). Údajně vyhrál V8H, ale výroba 395 kusů se nerozeběhla. Firma BMM byla plně vytížena dodávkami pro Wehrmacht.

Dear Sir,
in 1940, a new medium tank test was held in Romania. The competition was attended by T-21 (Skoda) and V8H (BMM ex ČKD). Allegedly, he won the V8H, but the production of 395 pieces did not take off. BMM was fully equipped with supplies to the Wehrmacht.
