British Stuarts sometimes had the turret removed, and replaced with a .50cal machine-gun. This lowered the vehicle's profile and lightened it quite a bit, and that obsolete gun wasn't of much use in the recon role. This conversion had the nickname of Jalopy.Originally Posted by Kosake
The Stuart chassis and turret was used for the M8 Scott, which was a light assault gun with a 75mm howitzer.
There was an AA variant of the Staghound with twin .50cal MGs, and a fire support variant with a 3" howitzer.
That Tiger is an older model fitted with special air filters for use in the desert. Perfect for the guys working on the Afrika mod.I mean, just look at the two different tiger models on that scan. One has some kind of exhaust tubes fitted on the back...
