You know that:

  • When the U.S. Army was looking for a suitable machine to support advancing infantry in 1942, Cadillac came up with a self-propelled howitzer design based on the proven M5 Stuart tank chassis.
  • The short gun was installed in a lightweight, open turret that held 46 rounds.
  • The official name of the machine is the 75 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage M8, but like all wartime equipment, the howitzer was given the shortened nickname ,,Grand Scott" and later abbreviated to ,,Scott". Why this was so is no longer known.
  • The howitzer, equipped with two Cadillac engines, emitted a loud and unmistakable roar due to the vibration of its short and tall design, which frightened the enemy. On the other hand, stealthy approach without the attention of the enemy was nearly impossible.
  • There were two lockable hatches in the front of the hull for the driver and gunner, which could be closed if necessary. Two periscopes were used to observe the battlefield in such an eventuality, and the openings in the hull also made it easier for the crew to board.
  • Production of the M8 howitzers ceased with the advent of the M18 Hellcat tanks, but they remained in the US Army's arsenal until 1960.
  • A total of 1,778 were produced in various versions.
