Flames of War: Desert Rats - Grant Armoured Troop

British armoured regiments were delighted to receive the new American-made M3
Grant tank, which gave them a tank with a gun as good as those on the German
panzers, with armour to match. Rushed into service to meet the urgent need for a
heavy 75mm-armed tank it took the Germans by surprise. Its thick armour and
powerful 75mm gun are superior to most of the German panzers.

Its only real downside is its height, which makes it a conspicuous target in
the desert. The placement of the 75mm gun makes it difficult to conceal the tank
in a hull-down position behind terrain. At Alam el Halfa, with time to prepare a
static defence, the British were able to partly overcome these difficulties by
carefully choosing the placement of each Grant.
