The M5 Stuart is an American tier 4 light tank.

The M5 Stuart entered production in April 1942. By June 1944 a total of 10,884 vehicles in two variants had been produced. The tank was used in all theaters of war.

At first, the M5 Stuart appears to be a minor downgrade from the M3 Stuart, with slightly worse armor and lower speed for more hit points. The biggest difference is the ability to equip the fearsome 75mm Howitzer M3. The M5's excellent speed and agility can be used to expose the thin rear and side armor of your opponents for maximum effect. Be warned though, its accuracy is poor, so come in fast, get close, and then get out of there. You can always come around for another pass from a different angle.

The M5 Stuart leads to the M7 and the M24 Chaffee.

Historical Info

The United States' M5 Light Tank at the Patton Museum in Ft Knox, Kentucky
The Light Tank M5 was a modified Light Tank M3 with a new power train and an improved armor layout. A radial engine shortage was expected in 1941, and it was decided to find alternative engines to power tanks. The engines in the M5 were Cadillac automobile engines, each with its own transmission. The hull was all-welded, and the glacis was sloped and moved out to make more room for the drivers. The drivers had their own hatches, which were equipped with periscopes. Direct vision for the drivers was through two peepholes that were closed with steel plugs attached with chains. The M5's turret was the same as that on the light tank M3A1. The M5 was originally known as light tank M4, but was redesignated to M5 to avoid confusion with the medium tank M4. The British called the M5 the Stuart VI.
