The Páncél Katonai Traktor 18 tonna "Sárközy" (Pc.KTr.18), commonly known as the Sárközy, was a Granzerian medium tank developed in the late 1930s and used extensively during the Second Great War.

The Sárközy was the most numerous Granzerian tank, with over 19,800 built. The Sárközy chassis was used as the base for many other fighting vehicles, including the GÁgy.18 assault gun and Pancelvadász.18 tank destroyer.
