The T-26 is the second light vehicle the player can pilot after the SU-18. It is stronger than the US' M2 Light tank and the German's Panzer Kampfwagen II. Although it has superior firepower, it lacks the protection it needs on it's scouting runs.
The T-26 was a Soviet tank that was used during the many conflicts of 1930 and was widely considered the most successful tank design of the 1930s. It was produced in greater numbers than any other tank of the period, with more than 11,000 produced.
The T-26 was reliable and easy to maintain, and it's design was continually modernised between 1931 and 1941. However, no new models of the T-26 were developed beyond 1940.
