The aircraft was designed from 1939-1940. It was designed to compete with a threat of the Bf.109 which Soviets encountered in Spain, it became the I-301, developed by SA Lavochkin, VP Gorbunov and MI Gudkov. It then became LaGG-3 in serial production which later resulted in further development of the highly successful La series of fighters.http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=361916684http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=361916808
To meet the needs of US troops on the battlefield, armoured self-propelled guns, capable of providing close support, in 1941-42. experiments were conducted to install Howitzers on the chassis of light tanks and armoured personnel carriers. During production, 1778 units were made of the M8. To increase the combat capabilities of the M8, it was upgraded to the M8A1 modified version with more powerful weapons and modified turret. However, this modification was not moved into mass production, but subsequently, SAU M8 M4 tanks replaced with a 105-mm howitzer.
