The M2A4 had a top speed of 35mph, range 200 miles
vehicle was armed 1 x 37mm gun w/103 rounds of ammo and 4 x M1919 .30 caliber air-cooled machine guns w/8,470 rounds.


Looking at file photo, we can see the 37mm gun, two .30 cal. machine guns mounted on each side of the forward hull, commander had his .30 cal. mounted on turret.


Commander has been issued the M1938 tankers helmet w/M1938 goggles, uniform is one piece herringbone coveralls, most crews were armed with a .45 cal Colt M1911 Pistol in a shoulder holster or carried on a web belt, M1A1 .45 cal Thompson sub machine guns and grenades.


Crew (4) Commander who doubled as its gunner,
driver, ammo loader and co-driver in such close quarters, it must have been hot and uncomfortable
