The Armoured and Mechanized Units of the Far East and Transbaikal Front possess 1600 functional old tanks: T-27, T-37/38, T-30/40/60, MK-2, MK-4, M3 light, M3 medium. There are also 1167 of these tanks at repair plants that require refurbishment.

Production of these tanks and spare parts for them is long finished. Spare parts for old imported tanks are not being delivered. 

Spare parts are required to maintain the aforementioned tanks in service. It is unreasonable to resume production. I ask you to dismantle all T-27, T-37/38, T-30/40/60, MK-2, MK-4, M3 light, M3 medium tanks that require refurbishment, take off functional and repairable components, and use them as spare parts for tanks of these types that are still in service.

Attachment: list of tanks of old types.

Commander of the Armoured and Mechanized Forces, Marshal of the Armoured Forces, Ya. Fedorenko.
