The T1 Project Heavy Tank Pictures

In 1940, the War Department decided that a heavy tank was again needed for the United States and thus began the T1 Project. The blueprint called for a heavy tank with no less than four turrets in a true land battleship design. Two of them would have carried a 75mm gun a third with a 37mm, a fourth with a 20mm and this does not include multiple machine guns! Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed and the tank looked much different by the time it was off the drawing boards.

British Mark 4 Heavy Tank Pictures

There is evidence of Americans training in England and using the British Mark 4 tank in combat in France, but, it appears that photographic evidence of Americans actually using them are scarce. The vehicle shown above is one that was sent to the United States for testing and is shown here at Aberdeen Proving Ground. The female in the picture above was given to Caterpillar after WW1 as a gift. Caterpillar displayed it in parades until WW2 when it was given for scrap in a war effort drive for scrap metal.

The Medium A Tank M1921 Pictures

Built by the U.S. Government at the Rock Island Arsenal and similar to current British designs, this unit arrived at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in February 1922. The tank was equipped with the British cable and suspension track design. The track shoes were made of stamped steel with wooden inserts and were free to pivot. The object, besides simplicity and lighter weight was to find a way to keep the tracks from being clogged with mud.

The Christie M1919 Medium Tank Pictures

J. Walter Christie turned his considerable skills in engineering toward military tracked vehicles and came up with the M1919. Both turrets on the M1919 could turn 360 degrees. Tested at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, it turned into a disappointment for Christie and he asked testing to be halted. Christie returned again with the M1921, though rejected, it was a bit of an improvement. Both tanks could run on either track or wheel and was a true engineering marvels for their time.

1916 The Hamilton a.k.a. VictoriaTank

In the period before U.S. entry in WW1. Several companies guessed at the future needs of the U.S. Army and the possibility of a U.S. entry into the European conflict. This tank was built by the Oakland Motor Company (the modern Pontiac) to British specifications in 1916. It used the same narrow tracks as the Ford 3 ton. It was not accepted.
