Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

Stuart I-IV


III

AnnoGB15_Stuart_I.png

43500

The Stuart I-IV is a British tier 3 light tank.

Mass-produced from 1941 and supplied to the U.K. under Lend-Lease. A a total of 6,889 were supplied to the British from M3 to M5A1 variants. The M3 tanks were designated Stuart I by the British, while the M3A1 version was designated Stuart III. They first saw action in the battle at Sidi Rezegh.

The tier III light tank of the British Lend-Lease line, the Stuart I-IV will give you the same things you felt from the British M2; something much more sluggish than the American version. The main difference is the 2-pdr cannon you receive, making this LT much more suited for trading shots and supporting the main force, rather than charging head on like the M3 Stuart.

The Stuart I-IV leads to the Grant.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Is able to mount the excellent British 2-Pdr. gun, which performs exceedingly well at lower tiers.
  • High RoF on all guns.
  • Has adequate armor for its tier; the frontal armor will bounce most lower tier auto-cannons and machine-guns.
  • Good mobility and top speed when fully accelerated.
  • Relatively accurate guns


Cons:


  • Sluggish acceleration.
  • In comparison to its American counterpart, it is slower, less mobile, has a lower RoF and a poorer radio.
  • Has a boxy silhouette, making it an easy target to hit.
  • Still has the same armor as the M3 Stuart, meaning that if you're caught off guard and get flanked, your sides and rear will


Performance

The Stuart I-IV it plays quite differently to its American counterpart, the M3 Stuart. It gains the OQF 2-pounder, which is better than the M3's 37mm M6. But where it gains in firepower, it loses in speed and radio range. It will take more time to get to its top speed compared to the M3 Stuart, and will not be able to contact allies of enemy positions from across large maps. Not only that, it still has the same armor as the original M3 Stuart, and is sluggish due to the weaker engine.

Stick to your friends and support by flanking enemies. Use the 2-pounder's excellent penetration and rate of fire to rip your enemy's side apart.


Early Research

  1. Radios will be available if you've played British tanks already. Mount it immediately.
  2. Research suspension and engine to gain much needed speed and maneuverability.
  3. Research turret. The 2-pounder is already available if you've played any of the British low tier 'Cruiser' tanks, so mount it too.
  4. Go from there.

Historical Info

The British Army was the first to use the Light Tank M3 as the "General Stuart" in combat. From mid-November 1941 to the end of the year, about 170 Stuarts (in a total force of over 700 tanks) took part in Operation Crusader during the North Africa Campaign, with poor results. Although the high losses suffered by Stuart-equipped units during the operation had more to do with better tactics and training of the Afrika Korps than the apparent superiority of German armored fighting vehicles used in the North African campaign, the operation revealed that the M3 had several technical faults. Mentioned in the British complaints were the 37 mm M5 gun and poor internal layout. The two-man turret crew was a significant weakness, and some British units tried to fight with three-man turret crews. The Stuart also had a limited range, which was a severe problem in the highly mobile desert warfare as units often outpaced their supplies and were stranded when they ran out of fuel. On the positive side, crews liked its relatively high speed and mechanical reliability. The high reliability distinguished the Stuart from cruiser tanks of the period, in particular the Crusader, which composed a large portion of the British tank force in Africa up until 1942.
