The Lee was armed w/1x75mm main gun, w/48rds located on the right side of the hull.
This sponson mount, gave the gun limited traverse, the Lee held the line until the arrival of the M-4 Sherman.

Located in the smaller turret was 1x37mm cannon w/178rds, 2,3 or 4xM-1919A1,.30 Cal. Machine Guns were mounted, w/9200rds, but as I've said being an ex-GI the more ammo you carry the better.
