The M47 started production in 1951 but wasn’t fielded until 1952 due to technical issues. This was the first new tank design for the U.S. Army after WW II. But it was an experimental concept and called an interim vehicle as the Army designed what would eventually be the M48 and M60 tanks. The M47 Patton never served in a U.S. Forces’ armed conflict (Korea, Viet Nam) but has served in numerous Allied countries armed forces during armed conflict. Almost 8,700 M47 were built between 1952 and 1954 but upon the arrival of the M48 series in U.S. Forces inventory, the M47’s were quickly replaced and given to our NATO partners
