Tank description:

The M8A1 is an American tier 4 turreted tank destroyer.Developed in 1941 through 1942 on the basis of the M5 Stuart light tank. This SPG is an example of the successful use of an outdated chassis. The vehicle was equipped with a 75 mm short-barrel howitzer; however, attempts were made to fit a 75 mm tank gun into a modernized turret.The M8A1 is very mobile, which, when combined with its good DPM, absolves the con of low armor. Once the crew reaches 100% in Camouflage, the M8A1 is difficult to detect. It''s meant for support. A forward or close combat position, unless fully and well thought out, will result in a quick return to the garage. Although the 76 mm AT Gun M7 L/50 is a better money maker than the 57 mm, the 57 mm is superior in battle performance due to its greater penetration and higher DPM.The M8A1 leads to the T67.
