Easy Eight M3 Honey Hit/Damage chart

he M3 Stuart, officially Light Tank, M3, is an American light tank of World War II. It was supplied to British and Commonwealth forces under lend-lease prior to the entry of the U.S. into the war. Thereafter, it was used by U.S. and Allied forces until the end of the war.
The British service name "Stuart" came from the American Civil War Confederate general J. E. B. Stuart and was used for both the M3 and the derivative M5 Light Tank. In British service, it also had the unofficial nickname of "Honey" after a tank driver remarked "She's a honey".[3] In U.S. use, the tanks were officially known as "Light Tank M3" and "Light Tank M5".
Stuarts were the first American-crewed tanks in World War II to engage the enemy in tank versus tank combat.

East Eight M3 Grant Hit/Damage Chart

Grow ingup many moons ago (1960) I watched the movie called Sahara.  Humphrey Bogart was an American Tanker with his tank called Lulubelle fighting off hoards of Germans.  That was the M3 Lee while the British version was the Grant.  Great movie and memories from years ago.

Easy Eight Valentine III Hot/Damage Chart

 Valentine tank was another good British tank.  It had the same problem as the other early war Britsh tanks as it was under gunned.   Later the Canadian built version had a 6lb gun which could a lot of damage.  The majority ended up servicing as Lend Lease to the Russians.

Easy Eight Churchill Hit/Damage Chart

The Churchill was another tough tank to kill.  The only failing was it was just too damn slow. The other problem is was under gunned in the early part of the war. Later with larger guns the Churchill could go toe to toe with most German armor.











Battle Front 15mm M60A1/A3 tank

Yesterday my M60's arrived in the mail.  To some this is old news, plus other folks have done reviews. Here is my take.
    I have been waiting to someone to release a nice model of this tank for a while.   QRF's model was disappointing.  Basically it was a lump of lead.  Same goes with most of the other ones I could buy.   Well, I'm very pleased as it a excellent model of the M60.  In the future I will be buying more to convert in most IDF version.  If you are in the hunt for some M60's on the battle field.  I suggest you buy a few.

Below are scans of the M60.  The turret detail is very well done.  Same goes for the tracks.  I like the extra 105 barrels.  Those will end up on my Tiran 5 conversion of the T55 .
