Built by Cadillac, the M5A1 Stuart light tank was neither heavily armed or armored. The M5A1 Stuart was known for it's exceptional speed and maneuverability. These qualities made the M5A1 Stuart very well suited for armored reconnaissance missions. Our print illustrates the M5A1 in the markings of the 2nd Armored, 82nd Recon. Having served in Africa, Sicily and Europe the 2nd Armored saw extensive action throughout World War II. It is no wonder the unit was known as "Hell on Wheels".
