Description[edit source]

The American ‘Stuart’ light tank is fast and appearing wherever it was needed earned it the respect of American troops throughout the war. It is armed with a 37mm main cannon and several .30 cal machine guns.

  • As with most light tanks, the Stuart is very effective against personnel and lightly armored.
  • The Stuart is far superior to the Panzer I, and should have no trouble eliminating them.
  • The Stuart is small enough to hide in the trees. This allows for ambushes on enemy tanks. Make sure to stay out of their sight and always relocate after a kill.
  • The gunner position is very helpful, but it is your job to make sure they can do their job. Make sure you are positioning your tank in a direction where they can be of assistance.
  • The shortest route is not always the safest. Find alternate ways of getting to the same spot.
  • Buy the APCR rounds as soon as possible, as they make it much easier to damage/destroy enemy tanks. It is also advised to bring along an Adjustable Wrench to repair your tank if you get hit
  • Your speed combined with AP rounds can make you a force to be reckoned with, as long as you don't position yourself in front of your enemy.
  • You got one of the thickest frontal armor plates from all light tanks, ALWAYS put it towards the enemy's.
  • If you slope this plate about 10 degrees, you can make your tank invunerable from german Pz1A's, Pz2C's, Pz2L's and russian T38's when fighting face to face.
