The BA-20 Soviet armoured car was developed in 1934. Its full production started in 1935 and ran until the first months of 1942. In the early stages of WWII the car was used mainly as a scout vehicle.

The crew consisted of two people - a driver and a commander (gunner). The vehicle's tyres were resistant to bullets and it was the first armoured car produced by the Soviet Union that had an escape hatch in the floor between the chassis legs. The BA-20M was an improved version of the BA-20: command vehicles of this type had a whip antenna as opposed to the clothes-rail antenna on the command versions of the BA-20.

The BA-20M armoured car was deployed during the Battles of Khalkhyn Gol in 1939, the Soviet invasion of Poland in 1939, the Winter War between the Soviet Union and Finland in 1939-1940, and the annexation of the Baltic Republics - Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in 1940. The BA-20 then saw combat during the early phases of the Great Patriotic War. Some vehicles were captured by the German army and were designated Panzerspahwagen BA-202 (r).
