Product description

The M3 Lee was an American medium tank used during World War II. Named after Confederate General Robert E. Lee, the M3 was a result of the U.S.'s urgent need to bolster its armored forces early in the war. Its most distinctive feature was its unusual design, with a 75 mm gun in a side casemate (sponson) and an additional smaller gun in a rotating turret at the top.

Areas of Use: The M3 Lee was used in various combat areas of World War II, including North Africa, the Pacific and, to a lesser extent, on the Eastern Front by the Soviet Union, which received the tank under the Lend-Lease Act.

For which country: The main users were the United States, but also the United Kingdom (where it was known as the M3 Grant), the Soviet Union and other allied nations used this tank.

Possible uses in tabletop games:

  • Bolt Action: The M3 Lee can be used as a versatile medium tank for American or British forces.
  • Flames of War: Ideal for depicting the early years of war, particularly in campaigns in North Africa or the Pacific.
  • Chain of Command: Offers interesting tactical options thanks to its unusual weaponry and armor.

Technical data:

  • Crew: 6 (commander, driver, gunner, loader for the 75mm gun, operator and loader for the turret)
  • Length: 5.64 m
  • Width: 2.72 m
  • Height: 3.12 m
  • Weight: 27 tons
  • Armor: 13 to 51 mm
  • Armament: 75 mm M2/M3 cannon in the sponson, 37 mm cannon in the turret, several 7.62 mm machine guns
  • Engine: Wright (Continental) R975 EC2, 9-cylinder radial engine, 340-400 hp
  • Speed: Up to 42 km/h

Although seen as a stopgap solution due to its tall silhouette and unconventional armament configuration, the M3 Lee played an important role in supporting Allied forces until more advanced tank models such as the M4 Sherman became available.

Hints

The miniatures come to you unpainted and some of them have to be assembled yourself - a little superglue can work wonders here! Sometimes there may be small residues or slight damage caused by the support structures, but unfortunately these cannot always be completely avoided. But don't worry, this won't affect the quality of your model.

However, it should be noted that due to the 3D SLA printing process, slight distortions (up to 1mm) may occur on larger parts. However, these small imperfections are easily repaired with modeling putty (Green Stuff).

It's just a small part of the process that gives your set a unique character. Have fun painting and assembling!

Even though the figures are great to play with, it is important to remember that they are not suitable for small children. There is a risk that small parts could break off. Miniatures should not be viewed as toys.
