 By June 1939, the Medium Tank T5, Phase 1 prototype was ready for trials, with a sloped hull wrapping a tall fighting compartment and a new 350 hp R-975 aviation radial engine. This vehicle, which would be standardized as the M2, was limited to 18 vehicles delivered, for evaluation by a US Army commission. More had been ordered, but the order was canceled.

M 18 Hellcat Tank Destroyer

 The origin of the M18 dates to these first few weeks before the United States’ entry into World War II.  Outgunned as they were, Hellcat crews managed to destroy a significant number of enemy tanks, and were effective in blunting German panzer attacks when given the opportunity.
