The BT series formed the backbone of the Soviet medium tank force before the introduction of the T 34. This appears to be a BT-2 Model 1932 (M-1932) but is actually reworked from a later BT-5 for display purposes. The BT-5 was the second major production model of the series and had a 45mm gun in a large cylindrical turret, with a new engine and stronger suspension.
