Russian T-20 Komsomolez was developed in the 1930's powered by a GAZ-M 50hp engine armed w/ one 7.62mm machine gun. 6,700 were built. During the German invasion, many were destroyed or captured and by Sept. 1942 about 1,600 were left. The Germans used the T-20 for different duties, modified some into self-propelled guns.

Every site I've visited tells me the armor is 7-10mm thick, but I'd really like to know the exact thickness for all sides of it.
