Despite it's German name, the Panzer 38t was actually originated in Czechoslovakia as the LT-38 which was primarily designed for export sale to other countries. The 38t served a wide variety of uses throughtout the war, starting as a fast attack tank and eventually donating it's chassis design to numerous other purpose built armor like the Marder III, as well as munition carriers. While the 38t did well earlier in the war, despite upgrades over time, it's armor and main gun were too weak to contend with the increasing presence of tanks like the Russian T-34.
