According to documents collected by Maxim Kolomiets - availability as of 17-19 June:
Corps HQ - 6 BT line
4 Tank Division - 63 KV, 160 T-34, 41 BT line, 52 BT radio, 11 T-26 line, 18 T-26 radio, 13 T-26 twin-turret, 30 KhT, 64 T-37/38/40, 452 tanks total, 41 BA-20, 54 BA-10, 95 armored cars total.
7 Tank Division - 51 KV, 78 T-34, 102 BT line, 32 BT radio, 33 T-26 line, 5 T-26 radio, 2 T-26 twin-turret, 14 KhT, 46 T-37/38/40, 1 T-26 tractor, 364 tanks total, 39 BA-20, 55 BA-10, 94 armored cars total
29 Motorized Division - 183 BT line, 17 KhT, 200 tanks total, 22 BA-20, 18 BA-10, 40 armored cars total.
From "Frontovaya illyustratsiya" No.2 2003.
One should consider that shipments of T-34 continued throughout June. How many of them were actually absorbed by the morning of 22.6 is a question without a precise answer.
