T-70M Light Tank of the "Tambov Farmers"
In November, 1942 the Tambov farmers initiated a patriotic initiative to raise funds for the building of this tank column.

No less than 40 million rubles were gathered to equip a tank column with brand-new T-34 Model 1942 of Factory No.112 and T-70M tanks.

On a frosty December morning, the tanks, decorated with slogans, were handed over to the crews.

Subsequently, the tank column was transfered to the Don Front as part of the 2nd Tank Corps where it participated successfully in overwhelming enemy resistance.
