Heroes & Generals Wiki


The Chaffee is a late-war American light tank. It is fast and with its lightweight 75mm main gun it packs a serious punch compared to other light tanks. The Chaffee is often used in harassing tactics against heavier tanks.

  • The Chaffee has far less reserve ammunition than the previous American light tank, the M5A1. Maintain firing discipline, as the tank only carries 48 rounds.
  • With its 75mm gun and high mobility, the Chaffee can easily flank and attack larger enemy tanks where their armor is lighter before retreating to safety.
  • The Chaffee has the largest cannon (75 mm) among all light tanks, which allows it to pack quite a punch
  • The 75mm HE round has a larger explosive radius than the 37mm HE of the M5A1. Use it to your advantage when engaging infantry.
  • Unlike the M5A1 Stuart, the time to reload the next shell in the Chaffee is much longer due to its larger main gun.
  • The armor on the Chaffee is still very light, so avoid direct frontal attacks on enemy armor and beware of anti-tank infantry.
  • The 75mm round is quite heavy, and so it will arc noticeably higher. Zero its sights to the proper range by pressing your jump key.
  • The Repair cost of the Chaffee is 716 credits per spawn, which is significantly higher than other light tanks, be careful not to rush headlong into battle and waste a tank.
  • The Chaffee has a relatively long deploy cost
