The other General Lee and another General Grant

Speaking of tanks …

… this is the M3 Lee tank, the first American main battle tank (then often called medium tank) of World War II (there was also an M3 Stuart light tank, as well as a M5 Stuart light tank).

The British ordered a variation of the M3, called the Grant.  Compare the turrets to see the biggest difference:

This Grant tank is at the Imperial War Museum in London; it served as General Montgomery’s headquarters tank.
