M5A1 U.S. Light Tank: TamiyaSale!
M5A1 U.S. Light Tank: 1:35 Scale
The M5 Stuart began production in April, 1942. Field usage in North Africa demanded improvements, most noticeably a newly designed turret, where a rear bustle housed a SCR508 radio. Factory work on the M5A1 began in September, 1942. Over 6,800 were made before production ceased in June, 1944. It held a crew of four, weighed around 17 tons, and could reach a maximum speed of 36 mph. The light tanks were built for speed in supporting reconnaissance work but their firepower was inadequate against anything larger than halftracks or armored cars.
