Heroes & Generals Wiki


The American ‘Stuart’ light tank is fast and appearing wherever it was needed earned it the respect of American troops throughout the war. It is armed with a 37mm main cannon and several .30 cal machine guns.

  • As with most light tanks, the Stuart is very effective against personnel and lightly armored targets.
  • The Stuart is small enough to hide in all bushlines. This allows for ambushes on enemy tanks. Make sure to stay out of their sight and always relocate after a kill.
  • The gunner position is very helpful, but it is your job to make sure they can do their job. Make sure you are positioning your tank in a direction where they can be of assistance.
  • The shortest route is not always the safest. Find alternate ways of getting to the same spot.
  • Buy the M51B1 APC rounds as soon as possible, as they are much more effective at killing vehicles.
  • The Stuart has one of the thickest frontal armor plates among all light tanks, ALWAYS show it towards enemy.
