    Usually those were either utilized for scrap metal or used as fixed practice targets at tank schools. In some cases the were given to the allies of the USSR (e.g. Bulgaria, Romania) and used in their armies either in regular units or as immobilized fortifications (like on the border between Bulgaria and Turkey).
