neglected M5 High Speed Tractor was seen outside a private military
museum in Gettysburg, PA in July 2004. In its day, the M5 was the
prime mover for the 105mm and 155mm howitzers and the 4.5 inch gun
carriage. It used the M3 light tank track and modified suspension
similar to the Stuart series. The tractor carried a gun crew of
nine and was armed with a .50 M2 machine gun.
Ammunition stowage consisted of:
howitzer: 56 rounds
howitzer: 24 rounds
inch gun: 38 rounds
machine gun: 400 rounds
are two resin kits available for this vehicle, one by Cromwell
Models and the other by Hobby
Fan. They are both rather pricey.
