Vyacheslav BVV_d Bulannikov, game-designer "This is a Stuart with a significantly improved design. These vehicles participated in the Normandy landings and in battles in Western Europe. We couldn't let the M5A1 pass us by."
Eduard Borisov, lead artist

"This late-edition Stuart's design included a range of interesting changes based on the American army's experience. For example, the spare track around the turret as an extra layer of defense was attached right in the factory, not in the field. It isn't very clear why the tank needed a box fitted with a grill at the rear.


M5A1_02Our artists decided this was for carrying cats. Artistic types, what did you expect? :) "
