    Chinese-American 1st Provisional Tank Group (1st PTG)

    1st Provisional Tank Group
    China-Burma-India Theater of World War II

    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."
