9b FlammPz T26S 739(r):
This represents Russian Vehicle Note 6.3 several of which were captured in 1941. They were unpopular with their users due to the short range of the flamethrower and their poor armour.
The flame thrower was often replaced with the German Flammenwerfer 35 which was both longer ranged and more reliable.

With over 2,000 BT5 tanks built (Russian Vehicle Note 8), these represented a considerable part of the Soviet Tank force in 1941 and were captured in significant numbers.

Forming one of the most common vehicles encountered in 1941, several were captured and pressed into service. This represents the Russian Vehicles Note 9 and Note 10.

All vehicles shown on this page obviously have had radios installed as none are marked with the radioless symbol, however no note of this fact is made to that effect. Is this the intent?

Whatever about an AFV captured yesterday and used today, once the Germans had a chance to do some serious maintenance/repair work on Beutepanzer, they usually added their own radios. So whether or not that was was intentional, it is historical. The only exceptions might have been tin cans like TKS or L3 retained for airfield or point defence, but if it was intended for moving any distance (even local anti-partisan work) they added radios if possible.

I intend covering this in the multi applicable BG vehicle note. It will also cover the increased breakdown number which may or may not be applicable.
