BT-7 Model 1935 Fast Tank, Poland 1939
This view of a BT-7 Model 1935 Fast Tank can be identified by the slightly rounded prow, introduced on the BT-7, and the straight sided turret, replaced on the BT-7 Model 1937.
Russian Tanks of World War II, Stalin's Armoured Might, Tim Bean and Will Fowler. A good overview of the development of Soviet Tanks from the early models based on British and American originals to the excellent Russian designed T-34 and the heavy IS tanks. Bean and Fowler also look at the development of Soviet tank doctrine, the impact of Stalin's purges on the tank forces, and their use in combat from the small-scale clashes in the Far East to the apocalyptic fighting on the Eastern Front between 1941-45. A little lacking on precise details of the sub-variants of some of the tanks, but otherwise very good.
