The M3 Stuart, formally Light Tank M3, is an American light tank of World War II. It was supplied to British and Commonwealth forces under lend-lease prior to the entry of the U.S. into the war. Thereafter, it was used by U.S. and Allied forces until the end of the war.

M5 Stuart

With its twin Cadillac V-8 engines, the M5 was designed to relieve the demand for the radial aero-engines used in its predecessor, the M3. Initially called M4, the tank was redesignated M5 in an effort to avoid confusion with the M4 Sherman. The M5's 37mm main gun provided inferior firepower but the 50 caliber machine gun became a favorite of gunners. This tank's armament was effective and its mobility was impressive at a top speed of 36 MPH. The British were the first to use this American tank, giving it the name Stuart after Civil War General J.E.B. Stuart.
