This is actually an M3 Lee, not a Grant.

Scott Gentry (above):
After a crash course in the visual differences between the Lee and Grant tanks, I completely concur. This tank has the smaller American designed turret making it a Lee. The larger wider British designed turrets make the M3 a Grant. The caption has been corrected and thank you for pointing this out.
