13:20 T-26 -light tank
In 30s Soviets bought British "Vickers 6-Ton" tank along with license. These tanks were produced for export by Vickers company and did not enter British service, but were popular abroad. Soviets produced several modifications of these tanks, including this with two machine gun turrets. On the left is version with 45mm gun in a single turret, which was by far the best and most successful version of Vickers 6-Ton ever produced. Soviet union produced them in very large numbers and they saw combat in Spanish Civil War, battles of Khalkhin Gol and Winter War. At the start of Barbarossa -German attack on the Soviet Union they still constituted large part of Soviet tank forces but were already too obsolete.

18:26 BA-6 -armored scout car
Armored car from 30s with 45mm gun based on GAZ-AAA truck, which in turn was based on 6x4 Ford trucks build in USSR under license. Only 3 such vehicles still exist.

Chassis from IS-2 heavy tank with 122mm gun mounted on top that entered service in 1944. Good at blasting fortifications and German Panther and Tiger tanks from 2km away.
