The T-26 was based on the British Vickers 6 Ton tank and over 10 years around 12,000 were produced. It replaced the aging T-18 and over the course of its career the armament was increased (from 2 machine guns up to a 45mm cannon), this gave it more powerful armament than its contemporaries but it had light armour which was only corrected in the last version. At the time of Barbarossa it was the most numerous tank in the Red Army with 8,500 units however the losses mounted and it was gradually withdrawn from service on the Eastern Front from 1942.

The Ba-6 was developed in the early 1930’s and was built on the modified chassis of the US Ford AA 4x2 truck (6x4 chassis was called the Gaz-AAA). This design limited its mobility to roads or hard ground (although mobility could be increased with tracks over the rear 2 wheels). It used the same 45mm cannon armoured turret that was used on the T-26 and the BT-7. The Ba-6 was externally very similar to the Ba-3 with only the absence of a rear door. It was also the first armoured car to use bullet resistant tires. With stricter weight controls decreased the overall weight of the car to 5.12 tons and jst under 400 were produced between 1936 and 1938.
