Text in original Preserved Tanks In Russia publication:

This is an example of the first tank of largely Soviet design, the MS (“Maliy Soprovozhdeniya” or Small Support Vehicle) light tank. Also known as the T-18, it was based on the KS but had a new, more compact engine compartment, a new engine and new suspension. This one is fitted with mock up roadwheels, turret and guns, and T-54 tracks cut in half lengthways. The replica turret is laterally inverted (sources: R. Fleming, R. Stickland).
