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.
