1.Name the German tank whose hull was built by the Germans, engine put into the chassis by the English, who also tested it. However, this tank had neither turret or weaponry.

2.Name two Soviet tank constructors possessing “cat”, in Russian, in their surnames.

On the "This Week in Tanks" topic, the last date, "8/224/1944: The 11th Panzer Division finally halts the rapid Allied breakout from southern France during Operation Dragoon, and allowing most of the German forces to escape the area."

Is there a date of 224?
