The BT-2 is the first mass-produced BT series based on the American M1930 tank. It was developed for the purpose of supporting cavalry units and long-range invasion by taking advantage of its excellent mobility. Similar to the prototype Christie tank, this vehicle removes the tracks, connects the rear starter wheel and the rear ground wheel, attaches the steering, and changes direction with the front ground wheel to enable wheeled driving. However, when domestically produced as the BT-2, the power transmission method was changed from a chain connection type to a gear connection type. The BT-2 began to be handed over to the Soviet Army in 1932, and since 1935 it has been used as a main equipment tank, along with the improved BT-5 and BT-7 fast tanks. This vehicle was put into actual combat starting with the invasion of eastern Poland in September 1939, and was also used in the early stages of the German-Soviet war that began in June 1941.

This kit reproduces the prototype 76.2mm gun-equipped turret designed at the Krasny Putilovets factory with new injection parts. The track is an injection plastic link-and-length type, and photo-etched parts are also included. Order yours today!
