Comparing: M2 Light Tank vs. T1E6 vs. Pz.Kpfw. I
Development of the vehicle based on the M2A3 model was started in December 1938. The tank featured a new two-man turret with more powerful armament. A total of 365 vehicles were manufactured from May 1940 through March 1941. In April 1942, ten additional tanks were produced for training purposes. Some vehicles were supplied to the U.K. under Lend-Lease, others were deployed with the U.S. Marine Corps and saw combat in the Pacific Theater.
Experimental vehicles T1E4 through T1E6 were heavily influenced by the British Vickers E. The first prototype was manufactured by the Cunningham corporation in 1931. After trials in 1932, an upgraded variant was built. However, a different experimental tank, the T2, was preferred.
The Pz I Ausf. A was the first mass-produced German tank. In 1935 the design received an upgrade, including elongated hull and a more powerful engine. Mass production of this version, the Pz I Ausf. B, eventually totalled 675 tanks. The standard armament was weak, but some tanks were upgraded on the battlefield to mount 20-mm guns.
