 Char M7 Priest - Histoire, fiche technique et photos
Le tank M7 est doté, pour sa protection rapprochée, d'une petite tourelle située sur l'avant-droit de l'engin pouvant recevoir une mitrailleuse de calibre 12,7 mm.
La forme de cette tourelle rappelle les chaires des églises, où les prêtres font leur sermont, aussi le char M7 sera très vite surnommé "Priest" qui veut dire "Prêtre" en Anglais.
Effectivement résistant, le canon automoteur M7 pouvait cependant difficilement gravir des hauteurs, du fait de son poids très important.

 105mm HMC M7
The 105mm HMC M7 was designed on the chassis of the medium tank M3, whereby the upper hull and turret were removed and replaced with an open-topped superstructure with the 105mm howitzer in the right front corner, and the.50cal MG ring mount to the right of the howitzer.
Early models retained holdovers from the M3, namely the early-type bogies with the return roller on top, and the three-piece final drive and differential housing with a notch taken from the top right corner to make room for the M3's sponson-mounted 75mm gun.
M7B1s were modified during the Korean War by raising the howitzer mount, and consequently the height of the HMC as well, which increased the howitzer's maximum elevation to +65°.
