El vehículo pretendió ser un cañón autopropulsado de apoyo a la infantería sobre la base del tanque M5. La variante M8A1 presentaba una torreta modificada y un armamento mejorado. Desde septiembre de 1943 a enero de 1944 se construyeron un total de 1778 vehículos.

The M8A1 is very mobile, which, when combined with its good DPM, absolves the con of low armor. Once the crew reaches 100% in Camouflage, the M8A1 is difficult to detect. It's meant for support. A forward or close combat position, unless fully and well thought out, will result in a quick return to the garage. Although the 76 mm AT Gun M7 L/50 is a better money maker than the 57 mm, the 57 mm is superior in battle performance due to its greater penetration and higher DPM.

Performance

This little tank actually has quite a bit going for it. A turret, speed, small profile and an excellent gun. The 57mm gun is a good all rounder, making up for its slightly low alpha with a high rate of fire.

Speed, and a turret give this tank added flexibility, compared to similar tiered tank destroyers. Additionally, it can be quite difficult to spot, especially if you have the Camouflage skill and/or a camouflage net. Never attemptto use the "armor" this TD is jokingly equipped with. The M8A1 belongs in a supporting roll, whittling down opponents who don't know any better, or those that simply can't see you.

This tank in considered by many as a "pocket Hellcat" and looks and plays similarly to its tier 6 counterpart. Additionally, due to the high skill requirement (no armor to speak of while being very fast and stealthy and not possessing a giant gun), the M8A1 doesn't have the same reputation that a Hetzer does but is arguably a better TD for its tier, able to compete in any game it is placed in.


Early Research

  • The Continental R-975-C1 engine and the 57 mm Gun M1 L/50 carry over from the T82 and can be installed immediately.
  • Research the upgraded suspension first.
  • Next research the SCR 610 radio.
  • Go from there.


Historical Info

The 75 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage M8, sometimes known as the M8 Scott, was a self-propelled howitzer vehicle of the United States developed during the Second World War.

Development

It was developed on the chassis of the then-new Light Tank M5 (Stuart VI). The test vehicle had the standard M5 turret removed, and replaced with an open-topped turret, this vehicle was designated the T17E1 HMC. Armament consisted of a new open-topped turret armed with a 75 mm M2 howitzer, later an 75 mm M3 howitzer, which were reworks of the M1A1 pack howitzer. It carried 46 rounds of 75 mm ammunition; types of ammunition carried were Smoke M89 and H.E. (High Explosive) M48. It featured no coaxial or hull mounted Browning M1919A4 .30-06 machine guns as featured on standard Light Tank M5s. The only other armament was Browning M2HB .50-caliber machine gun for local area, and anti-aircraft defense; 400 rounds of .50-caliber were stowed onboard for the M2HB.

Production

The T17E1 HMC was ordered into production as the 75 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage M8 in April 1942. Production ran from September 1942, to January 1944. A total of 1,778 vehicles were produced.

Combat Service

The M8 saw action in the Italian Campaign, the Western Front, and in the Pacific Theater of Operations during the war. It was used by the French Union and State of Vietnam during the First Indochina War. It was largely replaced by the adaption of the M4 Sherman to use the 105 mm howitzer.
