Thats where the French invasion may have done them in - either by having tank storage or repair areas overrun during the invasion or by the fact that they would have already been weakened by the fighting in Germany and then basically faced fully equipped and unbloodied and fresh Belgian and French forces

If you look they really fought hard - some of the French and Belgian formations in the NATO books are missing a LOT of tanks - meaning that the Netherlands may have lost all the ones they had but the French and Belgians didnt get away scot free doing it
