The T1 Howitzer Motor Carriage was created in the fall of 1930 on the T2 chassis. The design incorporated components of the T1 Cunningham. Due to the Great Depression, all work on the project was discontinued at the prototype stage.

Pros and Cons
- Immense Gun traverse range
- Magnificent gun range, can shoot from corner to corner, comparable to tier 4 SPG's
- Has only one gun, so no stock grind.
- Second highest Hitpoints of the Tier 2 SPG's by barely anything, and is second to the G.Pz.Mk.VI.
- Hull traverse is second best, and sets the tone for the rest of the American SPG line, slow but decent.
- Only one gun, it doesn't get any better than what you start with.
- Ridiculously bad fully-aimed accuracy, coupled with large recticle bloom and slow aim time, second worst for the tier 2 SPG's
- Large profile makes it easy to hit.
- Second worst top radio range
- Tied for second lowest rate of fire
Overall, the T1 HMC is best described as second to something. It is second to nearly everything, be it second best or second worst. In Fact, it's only the best in gun range and gun arc ( How far it can shoot and how far it can traverse before having to move the hull). The gun range is extremely far, despite mostly seeing maps where this won't be quite needed. The gun traverse range is very impressive, meaning very little hull traverse will be needed. That's quite important as the gun's accuracy is very bad. You will miss quite a lot of shots, thanks to the aforementioned accuracy coupled with a slow aim time and big recticle bloom. Also, self-defense will be difficult. The large profile won't hide you very much, your low hp doesn't help, and the reload will be the cherry on the dead tank sundae. There is little that the T1 HMC has that makes it better than any other SPG, other than gun range and gun arc. Even if you can shoot far, you most likely won't hit anything reliably. You don't have the fast aim speed of the FT BS or SU-18, nor the high damage the G.Pz.Mk.VI has if it were to hit. The T1 HMC is best described as an under-powered SPG.
