|Notes||At the request of the British the M22 was designed as a Light Tank for airborne use. Designed by Marmon-Herrington it was armed with a 37mm gun and had thin armour, to reduce the weight even further the gun had no gyro-stabiliser and the turret was manual traversed. It saw action in 1945 along with British units in Operation Varsity, were they were carried in a Hamilcar Gliders. Because the U.S. Airborne never had the capabilities transport it by air it, the M22 was never used by US Forces.|
