The T-40 light amphibious scout tank was a Soviet amphibious reconnaissance vehicle of WWII, which was designed to replace the ageing T-37 and T-38 amphibious scout tanks. The T-40's suspension was torrison bar - an improvement on the coil sprung T-38 with an entirely welded hull. Armour was limited and the T-40 was armed with a 12.7mm DShK heavy machine gun.

Not many T-40 were made as the Soviets favoured simpler designs but the T-40 was used as a non amphibious version designated the T-60. Given that the T-60 could fulfil most of the scouting requirements of the T-40, only 222 T-40 were issued compared with over 6,000 T-60. Later T-40 had the turret replaced with a BM-8-24 Katyusha rocket launcher rack with a 24 rail mount of unguided 82mm rockets. (1029)
