Not much progress has been made this month, but we still have something to show.

First of all the Most complete asset, the M3 "Honey" Stuart.

The British obtained the M-3 under the auspices of the Lend Lease program and immediately put it to work in the Western Desert. Officially designated the M-3 Stuart by the British, it was better known as the "Honey" because, even though it was under-gunned and under-armored, the British liked its speed and agility.

Its speed also made it useful for reconnaissance. The M-3 Stuart saw service throughout the North Africa campaign with the Commonwealth forces facing against Rommels fearsome Afrika Korps aswell as fighting in the Pacific with the Marines and the Army against the Japanese Empire. By the time production ended in 1943, 13,859 had been manufactured.


The main purpose of the M3 Stuart is a lightly armored reconnaissance tank, capable of tackling other light armor aswell as infantry. Can be upgraded with a commander.

To not look like we've been stuck to one vehicle, here are some wips for you to look at.

The Mk. II Valentine Tank

Aswell as the Sherman III

Note, that the two rendered models are nowhere near complete, hence the smoothing errors and such. More info will be available on both as they get completed.

Hope you enjoyed this small update and thanks for the support.

Until next time,

Will the Stuart be able to cap? Would be the perfect part for it.

There is such ability in Royal Armor Support tree, allows most vehicles cap points.

It looks like the stuart has three hull-mounted MGs, will be able to use all of them?
Or are they just something else?

Yes, except the commanders one. Mainly because it haves a very limited arc of fire and it's just not worth having it working.

When It's done. Don't see any point in a demo, nor how would that work. Either done and working or nothing.
