About the M3A1 Stuart  – WWII American Light Tank:

Named for U.S. Civil War Confederate cavalryman J.E.B. Stuart, the Stuart light tank fulfilled the traditional cavalry role for American and Allied armored forces throughout World War II. Of the over 20,000 Stuarts built by 1944, almost 5,000 were the M3A1 variant, which discarded two sponson machineguns and added a redesigned turret and turret basket. Its 37mm main gun and relatively thick armor made the Stuart comparable to Axis tanks when it debuted in late 1941. 

The latest addition to Brickmania’s Classic line, the M3A1 Stuart features marking for the 1st Armored Division fighting in Tunisia in 1942-43. Here, American crews learned that the 37mm was insufficient against improved German and Italian tanks, and the small two-man turret and short operational range further limited the Stuarts’ usefulness. They were repurposed for reconnaissance and screening and served successfully through the war.

For this Brickmania Classic Series edition M3A1 Stuart we have amalgamated the best features of Brickmania's various Stuart kits throughout the years, plus added some new details exclusive to this model (new front slope, new turret hatch). Included is a sticker sheet representing a tank from the 1st Armored Division as it would have appeared during Operation Torch. Includes an updated Brickmania Classic Series US Tanker minifig with custom 3D printed helmet.
