Soviet T-26 Light Infantry Tank Mod.1938
The T-26 tank was a Soviet light infantry tank used during many
conflicts of the 1930s as well as during World War II. It was a development of
the British Vickers 6-Ton tank and is widely considered one of the most
successful tank designs of the 1930s. It was produced in greater numbers than any other tank of the period,
with more than 11,000 produced. During the 1930s, the USSR developed
approximately 53 variants of the T-26, including other combat vehicles based on
its chassis. Twenty-three of these were mass-produced. The T-26 was used extensively in the armies of Spain, China and Turkey.
In addition, captured T-26 light tanks were used by the Finnish, German,
Romanian and Hungarian armies.
