Light Tank: M22 Locust

M22 Locust

Initially designed for airborne operations, the vehicle was never used as such by the U.S.A. during World War II. In the absence of a good air delivery system, the Ordnance Department became less enthusiastic about any further development.

Characteristics for a vehicle with basic configuration and a crew with 100% qualification.
