The United States did not field good enough tanks during most of World War II as they were greatly outmatched by their German counterparts. They were easily destroyed by their 75mm and 88mm high-velocity guns at 2,000 m away. It was only in the last months of the war that the US Army introduced an effective and solid tank, with excellent armor protection and a gun powerful enough to defeat the German Panther and Tiger tanks, but it did not see much combat action as this armed conflict would soon be over by May 1945. However, the US manufactured these medium and light tanks in large numbers in an effort to offset their poor quality.
