The M7 is an American tier 5 medium tank.
This tank began as a test tank to see where they could go after the successful M3 and M5 light tanks but it ended of as a medium tank. Being known as the T7, the pilot model was produced in 1942 and finally standardized as the M7. However, the contract to produce it was canceled in favor of the M4, because this tank was deemed under-powered and overweight.
It is extremely fast and maneuverable, but has extremely thin armor and sub-par firepower. However, the lack of firepower is offset by a very high rate of fire, so proper use of the M7 will employ all of the tank's strengths: high rate of fire, speed, and mobility. If exposed to enemy fire, the M7 can be destroyed rather quickly, so caution must be taken when engaging the enemy. The M7 is an excellent tank to have in a wolf pack, letting the sturdier medium tanks take the shots while the M7 flanks, keeping the enemy tracked or inflicting steady damage to the target.
The M7 leads to the T21.
