The M24 Chaffee came into service in the closing months of WW2 seeing action in the Rhine crossings and the advance through Germany.
The turret mounted a 75 mm main armament, which was derived from an aircraft cannon design.
The chassis was used for a whole family of support variants; the vehicle stayed in service long after the end of the war.
The Chaffee replaced the Stuart in the reece troops of some armoured regiments, including the 8th Hussars.
