OT-26 (Огнеметный Танк-26, KhT-26) was the first Soviet flamethrower tank which was based on the T-26 Model 1931. It was originally equipped with a 25m flame projector in the right turret. However in late models, the left turret was omitted to accomodate larger fuel tanks in the hull. A few hundred were built and they were deployed by chemical tank battalions.

Fuel limitations and difficult operations in the small OT-26 turret led to the OT-130.
