 The T-26 was one of the two tanks originally available to the USSR during the Interwar period of the 1930s into the beginning of World War II. It served in the Spanish Civil War, the Winter War, and the very beginning of World War II. The last record of their service was in 1945 against the Japanese Kwangtung Army in Manchuria. 

 For the BEA, having just modernized, and in need of armour to deal with the Brotherhood forces, turned to older tank designs, the T-26 being one of them. Remade with adamantite plate, the T-26 remained one of the lightest tanks in BEA service, serving as an infantry support or recon role depending on the circumstances. In 2017, to improve their longevity, deflector shielding was added, and the cannon was replaced with a mass driver cannon, leading to the T-26-2014/17. 

 The T-26-2014/17 served until 2037, where the existing models were replaced by more modern designs. The surplus tanks, manufacturing equipment, and blueprints was sold off to the allies of the Bouzaculan Empire, who were allowed to build their own tanks from said designs. So far, foreign madeT-26s serve in the fight against the Scorpion’s Hand.

In the 1950s and early 1960s, Ferruccio Lamborghini owned a tractor factory. He was a sports car enthusiast who owned a number of high-performance cars, including a couple Ferrari vehicles with which he had frequent clutch problems. He went to see founder Enzo Ferrari about them, but when Enzo dismissed his complaint with something along the lines of, “What does a tractor maker know about super cars? Go back to your farm and leave the supercars to me.” Lamborghini was insulted. Irate, Lamborghini fixed the clutch issues himself and decided he could build a better vehicle than Ferrari, so he hired away some of their designers and in 1963 successfully premiered the Lamborghini 350GT – and an Italian supercar maker was born.
