At least one Flakdivision served in the oil field refining center; presently I cannot recall the exact division. I thought German/Romanian relations were bad from the start of the war due to German demand of returning Transylvania to Hungary. It seems the Romanian Army under Soviet control fought eagerly against thier former German Allies at the end of the war. A couple of Romanian Regiments served under the Waffen-SS at the end,

Hello to all :D; a brief complement.........................

Light tank R-35.

In December 1937 began the negotiations with France trying to establish a local production line in the country. However this could not be completed and eventually the tanks were ordered from France. The needs of the French Army and exports to Yugoslavia, Poland and Turkey made the delivery slow, therefore only forty-one Renault R-35 tanks were received by 1939, the delivery ceased after the fall of France in 1940. In late September 1939 a number of thirty-four Polish R-35 tanks that have escaped into Romania were also interned in accordance with a Romanian-Polish agreement, resulting in a total of seventy-five R-35 tanks available to the Romanian Army in late 1939. The R-35 tanks equipped the 2nd Tank Regiment, organized on November 1, 1939.
