      Ironically, the T-26 performed much better in the war outside Russia rather in the defense of its homeland. In Spain it was the "Tiger" of the battlefield, knocking out wimpy PzIIs and tankettes from big distances while remaining almost invulnerable to their fire at long range.

        Yes the Nationalists used captured T-26s and BT-5s well into forties. It woud be even greater tank with radios and atleast two man bigger towers.
        Kosovo is Serbian.
        I support United Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
        Behead those who say Islam is violent!

          Actually Poland had their "separated at birth" 7TPs which were almost exactly the same except for the 37mm gun. In 1939 the Germans had PzIIIs already but they still had to provide serious opposition. Did the Poles eqiup them with radios?
