The development of this tank began in 1948. It was supposed to be a vehicle with armament similar to the M46, but with better armor. However, due to its low engine power, the tank had poor mobility. After six prototypes were built, all work on the project was discontinued. Some elements of its turret, gun, and fire control system were later used for the M47.
