The Soyuz-T (Russian: Союз-T, Union-T) spacecraft was a third generation Soyuz spacecraft, in service for ten years from 1976 to 1986. The T stood for transport (транспортный, Transportny). The revised spacescraft incorporated lessons learned from the Apollo Soyuz Test Project, Soyuz 7K-TM and Military Soyuz.

The Soyuz-T featured solar panels allowing longer missions, a revised Igla rendezvous system and new translation/attitude thruster system on the service module. It could carry a crew of three wearing spacesuits, allowing the first three-person crews since the Soyuz 11 disaster.
