Tyeplokhod Tipa AM (Motor Vessel Type AM) was a light amphibious experimental tank of the Soviet Union. It was the winner of a tank design competition established by the Central Armored Forces Command. It was designed by G. Kondratieyev's engineering team at the Izhorskiy Factory. It weighed ten tons and had a three-man crew. It mounted a turreted 76.2 mm gun and contained three propellers. Two prototypes were being constructed at the Izhorskiy Factory. However, the project was discontinued in 1923 because of numerous technical glitches.
