    This screen from the video abt. tank battle in Spain 1936. Might someone translate what is it?


    It was a Citizen war in Spain. 26th October 1936 had place a tank battle near town Seseña, area Toledo, 30 km south of Madrid.
    Russian on T-26 vs Spanish on CV-35.

    T-26 had 45mm gun meanwhile CV-35 were equipped with 2xMG 8mm Fiat.
    In spite on superiority Russian failed. Infantry didn't support the tanks and Spanish aviation said the final word. Town was not captured. Spanish lost 11xCV-35, Russian 3xT-26.

    The battle is notable because of the first time tank battle was seen in the Spanish war and for the use of Molotov cocktails against T-26 tanks.
