There has not been very much reason for this, other than generally being busy at home, and busy at work. This has had some benefits. The first has been lots of practice in scout tanking — to admittedly variable success. It does been I am slowly grinding out the Chaffee , as well as getting the crews of the T and both Stuarts further trained 38 games between just those three. I have also managed to get the Ace Tanker on the T Indeed, having got it once I soon got it again in another match. Personally though I think the first of those matches was the most impressive, with probably some of my best ammo selection ever in game tip — when facing Tier V heavies in a T , use premium ammo. In other tanks I have played a few games on the GW Panther , but I am finding this mostly an exercise in frustration at the moment, though not one without high spots.

Leave a comment So these are very early first impressions of the new patch. Firstly, it is always interesting in the early days of the introduction of a new tank line of seeing the tanks start to appear. In the first few days the lower-tier matches are clogged with the low-tier variants.
The M5 “Stuart” (also “General Stuart”) was an extension of the original M3 Stuart Light Tank line of and brought about by the American military relocation of vital war-making supplies – namely the Continental aero engine used in the M3.
Development history[ edit ] Top: Fitters assembling an M2A4 light tank at a British ordnance depot. US Army infantry tank design started with the Light Tank, T1 during the s, which developed into a series of experimental designs which didn’t enter production. The T2 concept, starting five years later, incorporated several design lessons from the T1, but used a new suspension system copied from the British Vickers 6-Ton tank.
The first prototype was delivered in Through the s a number of theorists outlined an independent role for the tank that required it to move at high speed into the rear areas, a modern version of the cavalry. The British referred to these designs as cruiser tanks , but similar high-speed designs were developed under a variety of names. As the Defense Act limited tank development to the infantry, the United States Cavalry began tank development under the name “combat car”.
In keeping with the high-speed role, the new T5 Combat Car introduced the new vertical volute spring suspension VVSS system, which proved clearly superior to the Vickers leaf spring system. The T2E1 was armed with one. These early twin-turret tanks were given the nickname ” Mae West ” by the troops, after the popular busty movie star.

Mar 09, · M3 vs M5. Who is the best Stuart? – posted in Light Tanks: When you have the 75mm you will be faced with opponents that are stronger than the you would face in an M3 Stuart. So while the gun is bigger so are the threats to you. It all comes down to play style between the two tanks. The M3 is an almost scout; as long as nobody yells at your tracks.

Authored by Staff Writer. The M5 “Stuart” also “General Stuart” was an extension of the original M3 Stuart Light Tank line of and brought about by the American military relocation of vital war-making supplies – namely the Continental aero engine used in the M3. This initiative begat a modified Stuart light tank initially known as the “M4” though later changed to “M5” to differentiate it from the classic M4 Sherman medium tank.
The M3 Stuart, formally Light Tank M3, was an American light tank of World War II. The M3 Stuarts were the first “American manned (US) tanks in WWII” to engage the enemy in tank versus tank combat. M3s were supplied to British and Commonwealth forces under lend-lease prior to the entry of the.
Cavalry had the M1 and M2 Combat Cars. The light tanks had twin turrets, one mounting a. The Combat Cars had a single turret mounting both machine guns. The last in the series was the M2A4 which mounted a 37mm gun in the turret with 5 machine guns 1 mounted coaxially and the remaining 4 mounted in the hull. The M3 included many of the features of the M2A4, but had increased armour protection from 10mm to 51mm. Other changes included removing the vision slits from the sides of the turret and a strengthened rear engine deck.
With the increase in armour protection, the weight also increased, so the suspension had to be strengthened. The strengthened suspension employed a trailing idler wheel; this increased the contact between the tracks and the ground, thus improving the weight distribution. During these 2 years, various improvements were made. The turret was changed from a 7 sided, riveted shape, to a rounded shape.

Common measurements, and their respective conversions, are shown when possible. Authored by Dan Alex. The vehicle’s design was influenced by the preceding M2 Light Tank product and retaining some of its established qualities including use of a 37mm main gun, a four-man crew, and road speed. Pressed into wartime service, it fared well enough during the early-going when used as an infantry support vehicle or fast scout but was wholly outmatched by medium-class tanks in short order.

The tier 6 KV still has the mm ap derp. It’s been nerfed beyond all expectations, to the point where WG added a different, mm gun to rebalance the tank. Of course, the mm is horrifyingly OP. The main difference between the old 1s and the 85 is that the 85 has supremely bad gun depression and horrifyingly good DPM and penetration with the mm. I think the 85 is also slower, but don’t quote me on that. With the ability to mount that disgustingly effective mm howitzer or a fairly good 85mm gun, along with that trollish KV frontal armour and decent mobility, you can screw many people over.
It’s just a really, really bad gun compared to the old long mm. The new mm gun is still supremely OP at the moment, because rate of fire is wacky, the pen is more usable than the mm and the damage output is stable and high. Gun depression takes a hit, but that just means you have to pay a little more attention to terrain now. Still a fairly good tank to keep around, though she’s not an easy button for scrubs to do well in any more.
Well, I wasn’t really much for T6, so this sounds quite fun and tempting for me. Thanks for the details! And oh if you’re interested in training US crews for different tanks on the various lines, now is a good time to be playing. The Chaffee Races from now to Oct.

It started life in when Leyland Motors suggested a tank design using an adapted Rolls-Royce Merlin aero-engine, of Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster fame. At that time there was a short of the Rolls-Royce engines called a Meteor for this application so two designs were progressed. One using the Liberty engine became the Centaur and the Meteor engine version became the Cromwell. Once Meteor engines were available the Centaurs were fitted with them and became Cromwells, too.
Production began in January
The Light Tank M5A1 Stuart is an Rank II American light tank with a battle rating of It was one of the first American tanks to be released with the American ground tree in Update “Steel Generals”.
Friday, 1 January Place: Unknown American Late production M3 light tank with a D version welded turret. These late production M3s were called “Stuart Hybrids” by the British. Note that it still has the sponson side mounted machine guns and welded hull construction. There is a star atop the turret for aircraft recognition. The sponsons were remotely fired by the driver, but were found to have limited use and were deleted in the M3A1 model.
The M3 light tank – named “Stuart” by the British and nicknamed “Honey” by their crews because of its need for low maintenance and high speed – first fought in the North African desert in November in Operation Crusader. While the Stuarts broke down less than British tanks, they had limited range, firepower, and lacked sufficient armor protection. The riveted construction broke apart when hit, sending shrapnel around the turret.
