M3A1 Stuart Recce or Command Tank ???
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: M3A1 Stuart Recce or Command Tank ???

Hello,

the ASPHM association, located in eastern France, owns a turretless M3A1 Stuart :
http://www.asphm.com/projets/projet_m3a1_stuart_1/projet_m3a1_stuart.html

the owner has found that there is a pintle stand for a .30 or .50 machinegun located in the turret ring. The rust and metal damage seems to indicate that the modification is very old, it was not done 10 years ago or so.. Could this indicate that the tank was formerly modified into a Recce or Command tank? That could explain why it was turretless whan acquired.




thanks

P-O

On some Stuart RECCE's they had both fixed and movable MG points. The movable ones had a skate rail added so that the pintle mount could slide to the dirrection of the ememy. Some had 2/3 mounts fixed to the hulls.

Cheers

Anthony
