M3 Stuart is an American light tank.

Description

Officially known as Light Tank M3, the M3 Stuart is the first American light tank to see combat. First entered combat under British hands, its smooth handling earns it the nickname "Honey".

It is armed with a 37mm gun, which is good against lightly armoured vehicles, but not so much against more heavily armoured medium or heavy tanks. It is also equipped with five M1919 machine guns: one in the coaxial mount, three at the front of the hull, and one on top of the turret.

A popular tank, the M3 Stuart can be found in North African theatre, Italy campaign, Pacific theatre, and in the North-West European theatre. The Chinese also have access to one in 4406-Defense of Hengyang.

Trivia

The Stuart has a flamethrower tank variant in the form of M3 Satan.
