M3 Medium

Just to clarify that this is an M3 MEDIUM Tank. There was also an M3 light tank in use at the time (Stuart).

Agreed

slr in tx you are so right. This is a beautiful picture, the lighting is amazing.

Thanks to Shorpy and the miracle of Kodachrome, I will ever after think of 1942 and 1943 as a surpassingly beautiful era in American history.
