Recently I’ve enjoyed editing the Wiki; I’ve been focusing on Tanks from the United States. One of the first tanks I’ve focused on is the T1 Cunningham and the variants thereof as developed in the mid to late 1920s by James Cunningham. There were six notable variants of the original T1 design; they are the: T1E1, T1E2, T1E3, T1E4, T1E5, & T1E6. None of these vehicles would leave the prototype stage.

M24 Chaffee Light Tank

While I was at the Texas Military Forces Museum I was able to see an excellent example of the M24 Chaffee Light Tank. The Chaffee was built between 1944 and 1945 although it saw service in numerous wars beyond World War II; including the Korean War, Vietnam War, First Indochina War, Algerian War of Independence, and the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. The Chaffee has a crew of 5 and its main armament is a 75 mm Gun M6 L / 39. The example at the Texas Military Forces Museum was outside and by appearance pretty good looking compared to the other vehicles outside.
