Many vehicles entered the battlefields in the past, and many of them became worldwide known. And now, soldiers, let's roll back into history...
"...In the end of the 1920-s the American Army strictly following the method of using combat vehicles conventional for those times assigned a technical task to develop a light tank of infantry support. This new vehicle was meant to replace out-of-date 6-tonn vehicles and 3-tonn "fords" which were no longer satisfactory on the point of speed and armor.
The Cunningham Company was the one who showed great interest in that. They were well-known for their chain-track tractors. Having studied the experience of their foreign colleagues (first of all British) the American engineers came to a conclusion that the classical arrangement of a tank is far from ideal. A light tank Cunningham T1 appeared after they have combined their ideas with the ideas of their foreign colleagues."
