    Historical Notes

    During World War II, every major combatant developed some form of “flame tank”, featuring a flame thrower weapon. Though these weapons were too short ranged for effective use on an open battlefield, they were devastating to enemy morale and very effective in close quarters or against fortified positions. But, as infantry anti-armor weapons improved late in the war, this tank variant gradually became obsolete.

    During the 1930s, the Soviet Union developed a series of Khimicheskiy Tank designs—meaning “chemical tank”—using the T-26 tank chassis already in production. A number of different designs were created, including the KhT-26, which was based on the twin-turreted 1931 model. The KhT variant only featured one turret, armed with a flame thrower instead of the normal tank gun. By the end of the war, more than 500 of these tanks would be built.
