M3 Stuart light tank

The Light Tank M3 was a relatively cheap and reliable American light tank of World War II. The British term for this is Stuart Light Tank. The M3 Light Tank was fitted with a 37 mm gun, three machine guns and light armor. It was produced from March 1941 and was in is production for about 30 months.
The M3 rendered service in the battles against German forces in North Africa. Despite the heavy losses the M3 was a reliable tank in the rugged desert and had to rely mainly on his agility and speed. On mainland Europe, the M3 hardly was an important player. There it was more used for support tasks such as supervising transports, the infantry and reconnaissance tasks. It was also used in the Pacific war against the Japanese. After World War II the M3A1 Light Tank was also used by the Dutch army in Indonesia (KNIL).
