BT-7 is a Soviet light tank.


Together with T-26, the BT-7 forms the backbone of the Red army when Germany invades the Soviet Union before T-34 tanks became more readily available. It was also used against the Japanese in early border conflicts.

The tank is lightly armoured, but is relatively well armed with a 45mm gun and has good speed, which should be used as an advantage to outrun and outgun other enemy tanks.


The tank has a self-propelled artillery variant in the form of BT-7A.
