This M-3 Stuart light tank, christened "Miss Staten Island," was manufactured at the American Car and Foundry. The Stuart tank was the first American tank committed to combat in World War II and saw extensive service with the U.S Army and Marines in the Pacific. Despite its light armor and gun, the Stuart was known for its reliability and ruggedness.
