The property is subject to different plans and policies, including the Liverpool Unitary Development Plan (2002) and the Strategic Regeneration Framework (July 2001). There are several detailed master plans for specified areas, and conservation plans for the individual buildings. Suggestions for improving the M-2 poured into Rock Island Arsenal, Illinois, where all tank development was concentrated at that time.
They were then replaced by the more capable M-48 Patton Medium Tank. The M-47 General George S. Patton Medium Tank capabilities were an interesting mix of old and new. The rifled 90mm T119 main gun had a sliding block, vertical breech mechanism, and used the short recoil concentric ring mechanism pioneered in the M-24 Chaffee Light Tank. In mid-1941 a gyrostabilizer was added to the 37mm main gun, and in late 1941 extra fuel tanks were added to the outside hull to increase range.
This M-3 Stuart Light Tank is equipped with extra fuel tanks, which greatly increases its range. The tank also served as the basis for a range of special-purpose armored vehicles: the M-5 Command Tank; the M-5A1 Psychological Warfare vehicle, fitted with a loudspeaker system; the M-5A1 Cullin Hedgerow Cutter, used to scoop up beach obstacles and cut through the tough hedgerows in Normandy; three flamethrower variations; and a reconnaissance vehicle.
Great Britain as a training tank. The M-5 was shipped to Great Britain in 1943 and 1944 and was used widely during and after the breakout from the Normandy beachhead.
The M-5 Light Tank evolved from the M-3 Stuart. The M-3 Stuart was nicknamed “Honey” because of its speed and agility, traits that were carried on by the M-5 Light Tank series. The M-3/M-5 series proved adequate in service and was liked by the British, but by mid-1943 the Stuart had shown that the day of the light tank had clearly passed.

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. Here is where you can use a marketing tool called a SWOT analysis.

Almost immediately, changes were introduced. Early in 1941 a third turret design was introduced into production. The final major variation, the M-3A1, was standardized for production in August 1941 and incorporated all changes made to date.
