The tank was developed building on the results of studying the design and testing of the purchased American M1931 prototype tanks, with taking into account the requirements of the Red Army and production capabilities of the Kharkiv Locomotive Plant. The BT-2 entered series production and was accepted for service with the Red Army. The BT-2s were used in action in military conflicts of the 1930s and during the initial period of the Second World War. Total production of the BT-2 amounted to 400 vehicles.
