American Armored Fighting Vehicles 1920-1950 (What If)

In 1920, the US Army deployed a trio of three tanks, the M1 Halleck Medium, the M2 Sheridan Light, and the M3 McClellan, which replaced it's stable of Great-War era tanks; these tanks served through the 1920s, with various upgrades, mostly in upgrading the engines, so they could travel faster. In the late 1920s, the US Army had plans to replace all three tanks with a new series of vehicles, the T4 Light, T5 Medium and the T6 Heavy. Unfortunately, at that time, the world economy crashed, creating the Great Depression. Feeling the penny pinch, Congress refused to fund the replacement programs, and in desperation, the US Army finally turned to a man it had previously ignored; Walter J. Christie.
