    Many also used as artillery tractors, etc, with turret removed.

    The BT7 were a fairly good tank, they were extensively used for training, anti-partisan & other such duties.

          While not German you still should not forget probably the worst armored vehicle of the war which happened to be based on BT-7 chassis...

          Behold, the Finnish BT-42. BT-7 with it's turret replaced with welded up contraption holding pre-WW I era 114.3 mm British howitzer.

            The BT-42...ughhh, what a jumk pile.

            Yeah, leave it to the Finns, they always were willing to try something to see if it would work. I remember seeing pictures of their Stug 4's with huge timbers on the side armor for extra protection!
