Product Description
In the summer of 1940, the U.S. Army began developing its first heavy tank, designated T1E1, and later changed the name to M6.  The tank was a contemporary of the M3 Stuart light tank and the M3 Lee medium tank (trust me, this is not as confusing the Army's overuse of the designation "M1" for every other piece of hardware that they use).  The prototype M6 was finally produced around the same time that the U.S. entered the war, and was shortly thereafter shelved in favour of the smaller M26 Pershing heavy tank, and, even more importantly, mass production of the M4 Sherman medium tank.  It was clear, by this time, that with a main armament of a 76.2mm main gun and only 83mm of maximum armour protection, but a weight of 57 tonnes, that the M6 was already obsolete compared to contemporary German and Soviet heavy tanks.
