The T.15 was a Belgian light reconnaissance tank based on the Vickers Light Tank Mk III built in 1935.
Like the T.13 tank destroyers, the T.15 was very lightly armed and armored, and tanks in the Belgian army were often referred to as ‘heavy armored cars’ as not to provoke the Germans.
As a reconnaissance vehicle, it was armed with a 13.2 mm Hotchkiss machine gun and had a good top speed of 64 km/h, with a power-to-weight ratio of 23.16 hp per ton. There also was a 7.65 mm FN-Browning FM-30 machine gun on the cupola for anti-aircraft purposes.

In-game this would be very similar to an M2A2, but without the other turret obstructing the field of fire.
You would have to carefully pick your targets and use your quick speed to get in or out of trouble, flank the Panzer’s weak side armor and maybe hope for a lucky bounce off your angled upper front plate if you come under fire.
It could go to France along with a Belgian subtree, to Britain as an event vehicle because of the chassis, or be kept for a Benelux tech tree, let me know what you think of it!
