This book surveys the development of the T-26 as well as its combat record in the Spanish Civil War, the war in China, the border wars with Poland and Finland in 1939-40, and the disastrous battles of 1941 during Operation Barbarossa.

The T-26 was the first major Soviet program of the 1930s, beginning as a license-built version of the British Vickers 6-ton export tank. Although the T-26 retained the basic Vickers hull and suspension, the Red Army began to make extensive changes to the turret and armament, starting with the addition of a 45mm tank gun in 1933. The T-26 was built in larger numbers than any other tank prior to World War II. Indeed, more T-26 tanks were manufactured than the combined tank production of Germany, France, Britain, and the United States in 1931-40.

About the Author:

He has worked as an analyst in the aerospace industry for over two decades, covering missile systems and the international arms trade, and has served with the Institute for Defense Analyses, a federal think tank. He is the author of numerous books on military technology and military history, with an accent on the US Army in World War II as well as Russia and the former Soviet Union. The author lives in Abingdon, MD.

Review:

“New Vanguard continues its track record of producing high quality and useful publications, not only for the buff, but the serious historian as well. This is a nice addition for anyone interested in Soviet armor and is highly recommended.” ―Marc Blackburn, IPMS/USA

“Coverage follows Osprey's proven 'New Vanguard' prescription.  With two minor exceptions, period photos support the survey.  Sidebars, extended captions, tables and charts augment the account.  Henry Morshead's excellent color illustrations offer plenty of modeling inspiration.  And Zaloga even provides the formula for the standard Soviet armor paint -- 4BO camouflage green! A superb little study, Steven J. Zaloga.  Roundly recommended!” ―David L. Veres, Cybermodeler Online
