US Light Tank M24

 

Known as the Chaffee in British service the M24 saw service towards the endof World Warr II ansd on into the Korean War. Light;y armed it was no real match for the T34s and other heavy tanks that were deployed. However it came into it's own as a light reconnaissance tank.

A very aesthetically pleasing looking machine Les: I bet they could go at quite a speed
Les Auld: They were a fast tank indeed Chris, if memory serves me correctly I have a vision of several racing along the road in the film "Bridge of Remargen" back in the sixties. Thanks for the comment.
Great depth to this shot Les, a fine machine.
Les Auld: It is indeed John, thanks for the comment.
Lots of nice detail Les, a fine shot.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, a touch of Topaz does help.

A nice little toy, then, Les?! She's really a beauty in your hands!
Les Auld: I must admit I wouldn't mind driving it Ginnie, thanks for the comment.
A well preserved tank by the look of it and one I had not heard of.
Les Auld: A late war model Bill, thanks for the comment.
