    The 1st PTG fought much of the early part of the Northern Burma campaign with M3A3 light tanks, armed with 37mm guns. It was authorized 100-125 M3A3's at any given time. M/Sgt. Carl Beck, who led the 44-man training detachment, didn't like the M-3's. He said, "Japanese 47mm AT guns went right through the hulls of those little M-3's and out the other side. If they hit that little aluminum transmission, the transmission exploded, and everyone got hurt. We didn't have much protection."
