The MT-LB (многоцелевой тягач легкий бронированный, Mnogotselevoy Tyagach Lekhko Bronirovannyi / multi-purpose light-armoured towing vehicle) is a Soviet multi-purpose fully amphibious auxiliary armoured tracked vehicle which was first introduced in the late 1960s. Initially the vehicle was known as the M 1970 in the west.

The crew, a driver and a commander/gunner sit in a compartment at the front of the vehicle, with the engine behind them. A compartment at the rear enables up to 11 infantry to be carried or a cargo of up to 2,000 kg. A load of 6,500 kg can be towed. The vehicle is fully amphibious, being propelled by its tracks in the water.

A small turret at the front of the vehicle fits a 7.62 mm PKT machine gun with 360 degree manual traverse and an elevation of -5 to +30 degrees. The vehicle is lightly armoured against small arms and shell splinters with a thickness of 3 to 10 mm of steel. The infantry compartment has two hatches over the top, which open forwards. There are 4 firing ports - two in the both sides of the hull, the other two in the rear twin doors of the infantry compartment.

In Project Reality, the MT-LB is a lightly armoured, multi-purpose vehicle, allowing it to be used in a variety of different roles on the battlefield. It is used by the Middle Eastern Coalition and Russia.
