M-22 Locust

M-22 Locust at Aberdeen

With the development of airborne forces, the US Army adopted a light airborne tank to support them - the M-22 armed with a 37mm gun and one machine gun.  No US glider could transport the tank and its only combat use was with the British landings behind the Rhine in 1945.  The vehicle was not considered to be successful design.
