It was widely used during the Korean War (1950-1953). It is basically the same as the WWII T26E3 except for the cannon. The cannon cradle was also different. The previous versions had it on the rear plate of the hull but this one has it on the upper part of the engine. Other slight differences are noted on the hull's front. In general, the first versions had a round fan housing between the driver and the radio operator's hatches; however, in the last versions it was square. Finally, the chains are also different from the WWII model. The previous T-66 ones became the T-20 model with chevrons. All these differences have been exactly reproduced in the Dragon model. Technically, it is a classic design whose only peculiarity consists in having been the first American armoured car manufactured on large scale with torsion bar suspension and rear drive transmission.
