The M37 is an American tier 4 self-propelled gun.

Developed in 1945 on the basis of the M24, with a total of 150 vehicles manufactured. The tank was never used in combat during World War II, but it did see action during the Korean War.

While the hull is a conversion of the M24 Chaffee, unfortunately the extra weight means it retains little of the original vehicle's maneuverability. The initial acceleration and hull traverse rate are very poor and the suspension should be the first upgrade since it can't mount the upgraded gun without increasing the weight limit. Upgrading the gun will allow you to fire almost across the map (the increased range isn't listed on the in-game stats). Despite the vehicle's flaws, both 105mm guns hit very hard for their tier and allow the M37 to punch above its weight in heavier battles. Another important thing to note is the M37's extremely wide gun traverse arc of 52 degrees, which, along with the GW Panther, gives it the widest gun traverse arc in the game for an SPG without a traversable turret.

As of the 8.6 update the M37 has been bumped up to tier 4, with the previously tier 4 M7 Priest taking its place.

The M37 leads to the M41.

Historical Info

105mm Howitzer Motor Carriage M37 at Aberdeen proving ground

The 105mm HMC M37 was based on a lengthened chassis of the M24 Chaffee light tank, and the vehicle was modified much the same way as the 105mm HMC M7, which used the medium tank M3 or M4 chassis. The M4 105mm howitzer was the same as that used in the howitzer-armed Shermans, and was mounted on the M37 to the right of the carriage's centerline, replacing the assistant driver's position. The .50cal machine gun ring mount was to the right of the howitzer mount.
