The Soviets have been producing flame tanks since 1938 but the first OB I could find that used them was the Flame Tank Battalion that first appears in July 1942. That's a high level of advance planning

They are in the 41a Tank Division TOE using the T26 version.

I can't imagine that they were making the OT-133 and OT-34 models for a year before they deployed them. This has got to be a mistake on the implementation date for the Flame Tank Battalion TOE, probably supposed to become available 7/41 instead of 42.

Please get your facts right, the OT-34 was produced from summer 42, the standard T-34 had absolute priority + the chaos after numerous factory evacs took time to be sorted out.
Flame tanks were supposed to be part of large tank/mech divs but these large formations with lots of different tanks did not really work, separate smaller flame tank units were created in mid 42.
