Description[edit source]

The T-38 is a small Soviet scout tank. It is fast and is armed with a single 7.62mm DT machine gun and serves best in the role of infantry support.
― Heroes & Generals


  • The T-38 is the weakest tank in the game so try to stick to suppressing infantry. Try your best to stay away from larger tanks.
  • The Machine gun has very limited up/down traverse, so you want to be careful what kind of position you place your vehicle, in order to be able to fire at desired area.
  • Thin armor means that you are a main target for all other tanks. Stay behind cover and use the terrain to your advantage.
  • With upgraded ammunition, it is possible to take on Panzer I, Panzer II and M2A2 from any direction, and 38(t) and M24 Chaffee from either sides or rear.
  • If you see a M5A1 Stuart or even a Panzer II Ausf. C, you run. No questions asked.
  • The T-38 is amphibious so it can sail through water.
  • (Ab)use it's amphibious nature to flank enemy units.
  • Try to use this tank as an amphibious troop carrier, this will help a lot in capturing points that are on the other side of water.
