The T-37A was not designed to see action against any other AFVs, but rather for reconnaissance, screening, communication and active infantry support. Their amphibious capabilities were particularly useful in many areas judged impassable. The typical platoons comprised of a command radio version (T-37U or TU) and up to eight T-37A. In June 1941, they took the brunt of the German offensive, lacking armor and used to support infantry in desperate situations, their losses becoming appalling. The survivors were either shipped to rear sectors for training or auxiliary defence units.
