M24 General Chaffee Light Tank.

The M24 Chaffee was a fast light armored vehicle with the ability to deliver relatively large caliber direct fire with the excellent 75 mm M6 gun. More than 4,000 wer produced by Cadillac and Massey-Harris during 1943-45. The first reached Europe in late 1944, where they proved very effective and highly reliable. It first saw combat in the Ardennes in January 1945. The Chaffee's were used for reconnaissance missions in WWII. The M24 "Chaffee" proved itself as one of the finest light tanks of World War II. The "Chaffee" design struck a fine balance between the conflicting demands of heavy firepower and armored protection against the conflicting need for speed, easy deployment and mobility.
