The T-24 was a Soviet Medium tank produced in 1931. It was designed by the Kharkov Locomotive Factory in 1928. T-24 was a derivative of an earlier tank project, the T-12 tank which itself, was a derivative of the T-18. The T-24 eliminated transmission and fuel system problems. It also contained a larger turret than the T-12. The prototype was finished in 1931 and VTU permitted the production of 24 vehicles. The tanks were accepted into service armed only with machine-guns because the new 45 mm guns were not available until the next year. The T-24 proved to be unreliable and never saw combat, only participating in parades and training. However, the suspension was used in designing the Komintern artillery tractor and also the Voroshilovets heavy artillery tractor.
