M-24 Chaffee at Ft. Knox
Development began in March 1943 for a replacement for the Stuart. The M-24 Chaffee was first deployed in late 1944. The tank was maneuverable, well armored, and well armed for a light tank, mounting a 75mm gun comparable to the original armament of the Sherman - and featured a smooth ride with its torsion bar suspension. This successful design was used internationally for decades.
