Medium Tank M1.

The running gear of the M1 was almost totally protected by plates. The large machine gun-armed commander's cupola would look at home on the M48 and M60 tanks that would appear decades later. (Picture from Development of Armored Vehicles, volume 1: Tanks.)

Medium Tank M1.

The beveled shape of the turret and the open design of the tracks can be seen in this picture. The driver was provided with two outward-opening doors in the front of the hull as well as a flap with an integral vision slit. (Picture from Tank Data, vol. 2.)

Medium Tank M1.

Details of the engine compartment and the vehicle's rear are seen here. An exhaust pipe was placed on each side fender, and the mud clearing chutes in the side skirts are being put to good used in the apparently marshy terrain. The turret overhang of the tracks is more easily seen from this angle. (Picture from Tank Data, vol. 2.)
