T-27a Tankette


The T-27a Tankette, based on a Carden-Loyd design of the 1930s, was intended for use in very large numbers, in swarm attacks. It was originally organised into troops of twelve vehicles, later dropped to eight.

It saw service in the Winter War against Finland, and just made it into action against the Germans in Operation Barbarossa, but it was already obsolete before WWII broke out, and by 1941 it was hopelessly outmatched and took extremely heavy casualties.
