Is War Thunder Good

To meet the needs of US troops on the battlefield, armoured self-propelled guns, capable of providing close support, in 1941-42. experiments were conducted to install Howitzers on the chassis of light tanks and armoured personnel carriers. During production, 1778 units were made of the M8. To increase the combat capabilities of the M8, it was upgraded to the M8A1 modified version with more powerful weapons and modified turret. However, this modification was not moved into mass production, but subsequently, SAU M8 M4 tanks replaced with a 105-mm howitzer. In game M8A1 is on BR 2.0
