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.

The <value_unset_error> is a [[|]] tier .

<value_unset_error>

At first, the M5 Stuart appears to be a minor downgrade from the M3 Stuart, with slightly less armor, but more hit points. However, the armor is slanted better, and doesn't make too much of a difference. This tank used to be able to equip a powerful 75mm Howitzer M3, but it was removed in Patch 9.3 and replaced with the 37mm Gun T16 automatic gun. As such, it still posses formidable firepower against lightly armored tanks, but the low penetration hinders it greatly against heavily armored tanks. However, the M5's excellent speed and agility can be used to expose the thin rear and side armor of your opponents for maximum effect. Come in fast, get close, and then get out of there. You can always come around for another pass from a different angle.

The <value_unset_error> marks the end of its line.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good top speed and maneuverability
  • Good turret traverse speed
  • Good view and signal range
  • The top gun has excellent elevation, comparable to artillery, as well as great depression
  • Small chunk of spaced armor near the turret machine gun


Cons:


  • The top gun, the 37mm Gun T16 is a fully-automatic cannon, one of only 2 in the game; this means it fire 5 shells per shot, t
  • Has scout matchmaking, it can meet vehicles up to tier 7
  • Poor hull and turret armor
  • Second lowest penetration of all tier 4 light tanks


Performance

Due to its battle tier placement, this tank is relegated to a scouting role. This tank is not completely defenseless, but as it cannot stand against enemy fire, you should harass the enemy with hit and run tactics. This tank can win in a dogfight with pretty much any other tier 4 light, destroy almost any arty it will come up against, and seriously annoy anything else. If you can force the enemy's attention away from your allies, their jobs will be much easier and you will have greatly contributed to team victory.


Early Research

  • The Continental R-975-C1 engine and the SCR 506 radio carry over from the M3 Stuart and should be installed immediately.
  • As a scout, your primary objective is to light up enemy players, not try to kill them, therefore it is recommended that you research the VVSS T36E8 suspension first.
  • The 37 mm Gun T16 autoloading gun is next and is needed to unlock the next module, the M5A1 turret which has more armour and an increased view range.
  • After that, the player can choose between the M7 and the M42 Chaffee.

Historical Info

The United States' M5 Light Tank at the Patton Museum in Ft Knox, Kentucky
The Light Tank M5 was a modified Light Tank M3 with a new power train and an improved armor layout. A radial engine shortage was expected in 1941, and it was decided to find alternative engines to power tanks. The engines in the M5 were Cadillac automobile engines, each with its own transmission. The hull was all-welded, and the glacis was sloped and moved out to make more room for the drivers. The drivers had their own hatches, which were equipped with periscopes. Direct vision for the drivers was through two peepholes that were closed with steel plugs attached with chains. The M5's turret was the same as that on the light tank M3A1. The M5 was originally known as light tank M4, but was redesignated to M5 to avoid confusion with the medium tank M4. The British called the M5 the Stuart VI.
