Russian Tanks

Post by James Manto » Fri Apr 21, 2017 2:32 pm

I'm getting all Soviet thanks to some discounted infantry. And my early war Panzers have been languising in the box for a few years.

For Barbarossa battles I'm going to get a mix of BT-7s and T-26s (half a dozen of each, they can handle my Light Panzer Kompanie I think). But I think the artillery support tanks are just too cute to pass on. Anyone know if the T-26A was ever actually used or was it just the BT-7A?

No from Wiki
But on 19 September 1934 an incident with a T-26-4 took place: a blow-back because of shell case destruction during gun fire. Despite the fact that this defect was unrelated to turret design, the military representatives cancelled the order to produce the T-26-4.

I would stick with the BT-7A

Cheers
Too bad, though. The T26A is pretty cute.
But you're right.

Given what was driven off the factory floor and right into battle, you can "what if" pretty much whatever you like into a scenario. Vis the SU-76P
