The Danish M41-DK1 Walker Bulldog light tank is a unit in Wargame: AirLand Battle. In the game it serves as an armoured recon vehicle. It is the upgraded variant of the M41, it has an upgraded main armament, marginally better armour as well as mounting 'good' optics.
The M41 Bulldog, later renamed M41 Walker Bulldog after the death of general Walker in Korea, was a light tank developed by the US Army to replace the M24 Chaffee. It entered service in 1951, completely replacing the Chaffee in 1953. Although it saw very limited combat in Korea, it’s real test under fire came during the Vietnam War, mostly in the hands of South Vietnamese troops which fielded great numbers of them. It proved a reliable and efficient tanks, its 76mm guns scoring victories against the few T-54 & PT-76 the North Vietnamese could throw at them. Exported to many allied countries, the M41 found its way to the Danish Army in 1962, and remained in service there for almost forty years as a recon tank.
The variant displayed here is the M41-DK1, a Danish national variant: from 1985, the Danish M41 received heavy upgrades, especially improved fire system and motorization, to keep them going for almost fifteen more years.
Denmark used their M41-DK1 in their tank section with two M41-DK1s in their reconnassiace platoons supporting the scout squad.
