Description
Built by the Army Corps of Engineers in conjuncton with Stanley Steamer, this tank was intended to attack enemy strong points with an attached flamethrower and act as a battering ram if needed. Fueled by kerosene, powerful twin 500hp two cylinder steam engines powered a track apiece. James Merrick of the Stanley Museum advised TANKS! that the engines allegedly came from 'two Unit Railway Car engines and boilers, manufactured by the Stanley Motor Carriage Company in Watertown, Massachusetts, the makers of the Stanley Steamer automobile.' Further he informed me that 'there is a legend that this tank was driven about the streets of Boston as a demonstration during a Liberty Bond Drive, only to break down in front of the Boston Public Library in Copley Square.' Eventually a 35hp gasoline engine was added which gave 1600psi to the flamethrower because the steam engines could only provide 700psi. A two-speed forward and two-speed reverse transmission was provided. No suspension was used, but the tracks were 24' wide. Accounts state that this tank arrived in France in 1918, however, the war ended before any meaningful tests could be carried out
