T-40

The T-40 was developed by the N. A. Astrov design team at Zavod No 37 in early 1939 under the designation “Obiekt 010”. Accepted for service on 19th December 1939, it was series manufactured from 1940-41, with a total of 668 being produced. The early T-40 was armed with a 12.7mm DShK which was adequate for its day but was very under-powered by 1941 standards. It could, using the 12.7mm B-30 or B-32 round, penetrate 16mm of armour at 300m however. In June 1941, the non-amphibious T-40S variant was introduced (though it was not defined seperately at the time), armed with a 20mm TNSh-20 (ShVAK) cannon as used in the T-60. Of the 668 (443??) T 40’s produced 181 were the later T-40S variant.
The early model T-40S was amphibious and propelled in water by a four bladed propeller that gave the tank a water speed of 6km/hour. The tank {T-40S or T-40 in general?} had an undistinguished combat career, and all {T-40S?} were destroyed in combat in 1941-42.

"T-30"

The T-30 was produced in small numbers at Zavod No 37 near Moscow and entered limited service with the Red Army. It was not amphibious and was provided with spoked wheels for reduced weight. The T-30 was not further developed, as the design required modernisation and the tank was replaced with the T-60, which had better armour and a lower silhouette.
