This is a revision of the original image.  I replaced the drawing of the Renault FT when I discovered that the US-manufactured M1917 light tank was in fact the proper vehicle.  So, new drawing and a new name.

Thanks.  I may do those vehicles at some point.  I already have the M2 and Stryker vehicles done.  Haven't really looked at doing the others as of yet.

The bigger they are, ... the harder they hit.

From the Renault FT- to the M1 Abrams main battle tank so far.

It would be very cool to see this redone to scale properly! Still, is a very cool rendering. :)

Since nobody else pointed it out yet, they're called M3 Stuart and M5 Stuart, not Stewart.

This poster rocks...especially your M48, circa 1953 tank! My Dad drove one as an Army tank commander in the early 1960's (40th Mechanized/Grizzly)....good times!

It's fascinating looking at how U.S armour has evolved over the century...thanks for  posting this!

Yes, quite a change and yet somehow still the same theme throughout.

I'd say that's debatable.

Excellent Work.

They called the M1 a Combat Car because the 1937 Congress would never have approved of a Tank.

The M2 was completed just before the battle of France in 1940 and based on the campaign was found to be obsolete.

The M6 Heavy Tank wasn't put into production because of it's size and weight.

Good stuff.  I'm not an authority on tanks, just an artist.  It's always good to hear from folks who know more about the subject.
