Description

Developed quickly in response to Germany’s rapid advances, the M3 tank was a compromise to get the tank into service quickly. he hull-mounted main gun and small turret with a 37mm cannon gave the vehicle firepower. Two designs for the turret differentiate the versions with the smaller version known as the Lee and the larger one, sometimes referred to as the British-pattern, known as the Grant. The unique design hampered the tank usefulness, and it was quicky replaced by the M4 Sherman and other tanks as they became available. Nevertheless, it soldiered on in Allied service through World War II.
