There are no any good sources about markings for each Soviet armored unit.
It's one of the most hard subject for clarification, because three were no any official catalogue of markings.

Btw, tank divisions existed in the Soviet army only in 1941. Later they became more than rare thing...
Ordinary units ofr Soviet armored forces were Brigade-Corps-Army

Hello,

I am not very prepared for this subject, but want to drop my 5 cents too.

I never heard of the emblems for specific divisions in RKKA. My personal feeling that it was against common understanding of what was acceptable - no place for showing off in the Red Army.

But the tanks with special markings, appart from the numbers existed in relatevly large numbers.

This one has badge of VLKSM (communist youth union) member. The slogan on the tank reads: "Irkutskiy komsomolets":


KV-1 of Pavel Horoshilov (tanks name "Merciless"):


This one reads "Strike the faschist serpent":

At the beginning of the war one could see quite a strange markings.
some tanks carried markings from middle of 1930s
Another units had triangles, rhombus, crosses onboard.
But these markings probably were for recognition by own aviation (just my guess. much thoughts exists on the subject)

Later every unit had own markings, but the problem they were not unificated and I can't say I meet anywhere any catalogue of those markings.
