Development of the T1E2 started in the U.S.A. in May 1940. The vehicle was designed as a heavy tank. The distinctive features of the vehicle were a cast hull and hydromechanical transmission with a double-disc hydraulic converter. Later, the tank was designated M6. A total of 9 vehicles (1 of which was experimental) were produced. The tank never saw action.
