Shouldn't that say "Leon has A still, to photograph" ?

Or haven't you announced the launch of Pendraken's new range of Gin & Vodka, yet ?   Wink

How early are the early M3s? I know the earliest had twin hull MGs, but I don't know what the installation looked like...

2 holes in the glacis plate, basically not visible. Removed before going into action as useless.

Good, always thought they'd be useless.

I've seen reference to the M3 Lee having 3 - 8 MGs but the images I've seen show a co-ax with the 37mm and either a top turret with an MG or not turret and a pintle mounted AAMG instead.

Where the heck did the others go?

M3 Stuart seems to have suffered from excess MGs too with the sponson mounted ones being lost early on.

Did the US simply have so many 30 cals it didn't know what to do with them?

I know some early Shermans had 4 MGs stuck in the front hull.

Did they do the same on the M3?

There was definately a 1930s school of thought that put as many MGs as possible on to a tank, with little thought about how they would be used.

the British went with little turrets that required more crew, and ended up filling up with gas, and were probably shot traps.

The Amercians seemed to go with adding lots of fixed ones to the hull, on the galcis of Shermans and Grants and the sides of Stuarts.
