Yep,that is a Polish built TKS tankette that the Germans have built the fake T-34 on.Even looks like a trailer was added to support the body.

I would assume it was a semitrailer solution.
The wooden tank mock-up has wheels at the rear and hangs on a pivot point on the tankette which itself acts as the tractor truck.

a training aid of dubious value when they made it at least a foot too tall at the hull. For infantry to practice attacking it that kind of thing matters allot. The hull top should be at his shoulder height.

Great photos. But you would think that after June 22, 1941 the Germans would have plenty of real T-34's to play with.
