Because of several deficiencies a new tank was needed to replace the M-3 Stuart. The
M-24, referred to by some as the Chaffee, was given angled armor thereby increasing its
thickness. The M-24 was given a larger 75 mm gun as well as being the first US tank to
use a torsion bar suspension. The M-24 didn’t do very well in Korea against the T34/85
so it was given secondary roles to the M26 and M46. The M41 Bulldog replaced the M24
in US service by 1953.


On April 22, 1951 during the Korean War the Chinese Spring Offensive, also known as
the “Fifth Phase Offensive” began. It is estimated 650,000 Communist troops were
involved in the offensive. The main target was the U.S. I Corps near the Imjin River and
eventually the retaking of Seoul. The fighting raged until June 10, 1951 before the
attacking forces were finally beaten back.
