Photographer's Note

So this is the very first of USSR tanks, made in year 1920. It's exact copy of Renault FT-17 or "Automitrailleuse à chenilles Renault FT modèle 1917" French tank. It's a tank with given name, and as it was made in the middle of October Revolution, it was named "Freedom Fighter Comrade Lenin".
It's specifications:

Weight 6.5 tonnes
Length 5.00 m
Width 1.47 m
Height 2.14 m
Crew 2 (commander, driver)
Armor 22 mm
Primary armament: 37 mm gun
Operational range: 65 km
Speed 7 km/h.
***
Rather ridiculous tank, but quite old and historic. In Kubinka tank museum now.
