Introduced at the end of World War II to replace the worn out and undergunned M3/M5 Stuart tanks, the M24 Chaffee first saw action against the German Ardennes offensive (aka Battle of the Bulge). Lightly armored and fast, the M24 was a nimble scout vehicle that packed the same punch as the M4 Sherman tank. The M24 Chaffee was retired from US service after the Korean War (being replaced by the Walker Bulldog) but has soldiered on in other countries armed serives to modern times. during the Vietnam way, the AVRN (South Vietnamese Army) used Chaffee tanks that were left behind when the French Colonial Army withdrew in the late 1950s.
