|Notes||In 1942 the demand for more half-tracks increased and International Harvester was brought in to produce stakes, the new M5 had a similar external appearance to the M3 but with rounded corners but had a different internal layout similar to that of the M2. It functioned as an Infantry carrier and allocated for distribution to allied nations on lend-lease.|
