By 1953 the M24’s had been completely replaced. The M41 saw limited action in Korea but was very much in demand in Vietnam. In 1961 150 M41’s were delivered to the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force. Through out 1965 214 M41A3’s replaced the M24’s used by 5 Army of the Republic of Vietnam squadrons and were very effective against the ARVN T-54’s. In 1969 the M41’s began to be replaced by the M551 Sheridan. After WWII with Germany divided into East and West the West German military (Bundeswehr) was supplied with U.S. built equipment. The first tanks to arrive were the M41 Walker Bulldogs followed by the M47 and M48. The Germans made several modifications to these vehicles and in 1956 the Germans began development their own tank, the Standard-Panzer, to meet their requirements and replace the aging “M” series tanks. The new Leopard 1 tank entered service in 1965. Specifications for the M41 Walker Bulldog Manufacturer – Cadillac Motor Car Division of General Motors Corp.
