The T-12 (also called T-1-12) was a derivative of the T-18 developed by the design bureau of I. Aleksienko which was organized in 1928 at the Kharkov Locomotive Factory. Compared to the T-18, the T-12 had a more powerful 200hp engine. It had a planetary transmission and was able to carry a more powerful gun. Although thirty T-12s were planned to be produced, trials showed serious glitches in the tank. As a result, the project was dropped in favor of the T-24.
