Flexibility Through Modular Design

I've discovered that, thanks to Soviet tank development pragmatism, I can expand the variety of tanks available to my force by simply swapping some turrets around.

The BT5 turret is almost identical to that used on the early-model T26, while the turret supplied with Zvezda's T26 is very similar in size and profile to that used on the BT7-2.

There are, of course, differences in detail, especially in the BT5 and BT7, but they look close enough to pass on the wargames table. So, that's handy.

It does mean that I'll have to be a bit more careful about keeping the polarity of my turret-mounting magnets identical though — of the five T26 I have at present, this is the only one I can swap with my only BT5.
