The Chinese T-26

Let’s say it clearly:

The Chinese T-26 is entirely fictional.

China NEVER used the T-26 they’ve got in game, which is the T-26 model 1938. The one they used in real life was the T-26 model. 1933, which has a turret similar (if not entirely the same) to the BT-5 turret.

I believe developers have been told this some times already, but they won’t change it. Don’t know if it’s because laziness or whatever.

Come on, you just need to add the BT-5 turret on the current T-26 and cut some edges of the hull, that’s it! You could even add it as another reserve vehicle in the USSR, taking the place of the T-26 mod.1938 we currently have.

Why hire a man to model when you can ctrl a, ctrl c, ctrl v. (joking)

It just looks strange, wish they would just fix it already.

They also had 2 types of turrets 1933 and 1937

Riveted T-26 model 33 hull already is in the game as T-26-4, so it could be turned into T-26 mod 33 by adding a turret from BT-5 with an optional hand rail radio antenna. The tanks in the foreground of the photograph seem to be T-26 model 37’s though as the hull is welded, not riveted.
