This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.

In November 1929 ANII K. M. Ivanov was commissioned by the RKKA to produce a self-propelled gun based on the T-18 and an ammunition carrier for it. The prototype was based on a captured French Renault FT-17BS. The SU-18 kept the same design as the French vehicle, but replaced the turret with one that resembles a truncated pyramid. The SU-18 used the 76.2-mm regimental gun model 1927 with a slotted muzzle brake to reduce rollback.

The decision to build the SU-18 was made on June 11 and stipulated delivery of a prototype by October 10, 1930. However, due to the small ammunition capability and the limitations of the T-18 (a narrow gauge chassis and a high center of gravity) the design was abandoned in favor of larger and better self-propelled gun designs and further work on the SU-18 was stopped.
