Some historians consider the Japanese fighting in China 1937 as part of WWII, and I can see why.

Chinese tanks captured by the Japanese in Nanjing. December, 1937. Description claims that these PzKPfw I's are rearmed with DP machine guns, but to be honest I call that bullshit... For me it looks like they kept stanard MG-13 with flash hider.
