M24 Chaffee of the 9th Armored Division in Germany

M24 Chaffee

The M24 Chaffee was an American light tank that was used in the later stages of WWII, intended to replace the Stuart light tank.  Sadly too few of these arrived, and too late to have any significant impact on the war.

The main advantage was the 75mm gun over the 37mm of the Stuart, however it was still lightly armored and was vulnerable to all forms of anti-tank weaponry.
