SPG on the M5A1 chassis designed for jungle warfare. The vehicle featured a 105 mm light howitzer mounted in an open-topped cabin. Development started in November 1943. In August 1944, two prototypes underwent trials on the Aberdeen Proving Ground. On June 21, 1945, the project was discontinued due to the lack of interest in vehicles of this type.
The old tier 3 American TD, it was replaced by the T56 GMC and moved to the SPG line in 9.12
The T82 HMC marks the end of its American self-propelled gun line.

Pros and Cons
- Good damage per shot
- Relatively accurate gun
- Small profile and high speed makes it easy to escape from side losses
- Quick reload, at least compared to its successor
- Short range (covers barely half of the map without a particularly high arc)
- Long aiming time
- No stunning unlike its successor
- Absolutely no splash damage, if you miss you miss
- Lack of stunning and low caliber makes it pathetic against anything in tier 6
The SPG can damage vehicles of its own tier effectively but struggles against anything higher. The splash isn't too impressive (read: next to nonexistent), but better than its counterparts such as the SU-26. If you have played the FV304 already, this SPG will feel very familiar. If you have played the Hummel instead... well, wait until tier 5.
- The tracks improve traverse speed, which is much needed on this vehicle, get it first.
- Next, get the top gun, which improves aim time and accuracy.
