About the T-26 - Light Tank:

Widely produced in the 1930s, the T-26 helped make the Red Army the largest armored force in the world. By 1941, T-26 tanks outnumbered early German Panzers by a ratio of 4:1 and used swarming tactics to overwhelm German armor. However, come Operation Barbarossa, the meager protection provided by the T-26 was no match for the up-gunned Panzer III and IV. Though the T-26 may have had an early exit in WWII, it helped set a precedent for the mass production of tanks. A strategy that would ultimately lead the Red Army to victory.

Additional information about this Brickmania® custom building kit:

The T-26 kit comes equipped with myriad features, which reflect the versatility and longevity of the tank. A number of printed elements will let people know that it is, indeed, a Soviet T-26. The combination hand-rail/radio antenna adorns the turret, and the gunner’s hatch opens to seat the custom minifig. The turret’s main gun includes a floodlight. A spare wheel, tread links, and repair tools ensure that your tank will keep on rolling!
