Mighty Mouse
U.S. designers developed the M8 during WWII as an upgrade over existing half-track vehicles, using the M5 light tank chassis with an open turret on top; its 75mm M3 howitzer could fire anti-tank and smoke shells in addition to standard rounds. 1,778 M8s were produced between September 1942 and January 1944, and they served wherever U.S. units were active, until the end of the conflict: in Italy, Western Europe and the Pacific, utilizing their excellent mobility and firepower in a range of missions including attacks on enemy fortifications.
