The M8A1 is an American tier 4 tank destroyer.

The vehicle was intended as a self-propelled infantry support gun on the basis of the M5 tank. Produced by the Cadillac Car Division, with a total of 1778 vehicles manufactured from September 1943 through January of 1944.

Although its acceleration and traverse speed are less than optimal, it has excellent top speed. It has a slow turret traverse speed, which is the balance implemented for having a turret. It begins with a fun, but rather ineffective howitzer. The frontal armor is sloped with 39mm and 29mm armor; not as thick as its German counterparts, but more than its Soviet counterparts. It can bounce the shells from lower-tier tanks, but don't rely on it, and use the turret to your advantage. Once all of the crew reach 100% in Camouflage, this can be one of the hardest TDs to detect. Just remember this is a tank destroyer and not a combat tank. Also, the cost to repair this tank is very high, as is the cost of ammunition, meaning every time you lose a battle you may very well be losing 500-1,000 credits until you get the 76 mm AT Gun M7 L/50, which is a much better money making gun.

The M8A1 leads to the T49.

Historical Info

The 75 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage M8, sometimes known as the M8 Scott, was a self-propelled howitzer vehicle of the United States developed during the Second World War.

Development

It was developed on the chassis of the then-new Light Tank M5 (Stuart VI). The test vehicle had the standard M5 turret removed, and replaced with an open-topped turret, this vehicle was designated the T17E1 HMC. Armament consisted of a new open-topped turret armed with a 75 mm M2 howitzer, later an 75 mm M3 howitzer, which were reworks of the M1A1 pack howitzer. It carried 46 rounds of 75 mm ammunition; types of ammunition carried were Smoke M89 and H.E. (High Explosive) M48. It featured no coaxial or hull mounted Browning M1919A4 .30-06 machine guns as featured on standard Light Tank M5s. The only other armament was Browning M2HB .50-caliber machine gun for local area, and anti-aircraft defense; 400 rounds of .50-caliber were stowed onboard for the M2HB.

Production

The T17E1 HMC was ordered into production as the 75 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage M8 in April 1942. Production ran from September 1942, to January 1944. A total of 1,778 vehicles were produced.

Combat Service

The M8 saw action in the Italian Campaign, the Western Front, and in the Pacific Theater of Operations during the war. It was used by the French Union and State of Vietnam during the First Indochina War. It was largely replaced by the adaption of the M4 Sherman to use the 105 mm howitzer.

Variants
