Sort of a lot has been said about political side of the Hitler/USSR invasion, but let’s just focus on the tanks been used by Soviet Army on the first days of WW2 in Russia.  And lets start with “light tanks” like this T-27 small tank. Being produced since 1931, was total 3295 pieces present.

Another light tank T-18 came into the army in 1927. All-time produced 959 pieces. It was a first tank that Soviet country made by itself, not borrowed. Even they were already morally outdated when Russian/Germany war began they still were in the army.

T-26 Soviet light tank. Main Soviet tank at the start of the war. Built on base of British Vickers Mk E.  Was mostly used in Soviet-Finland war and in Soviet-German battles around Moscow. Almost 11,000 such tanks were made.
