Why is the American M24 Chaffee missing?  It served in WWII?

It is supposed to be a tier 5 light tank.  When it will get added?  Maybe .6.6

In all honesty, I don't see the use of a tier 5 light tank for the US line, seeing as how the M7 covers that very well with speed, decent punch and armor. Unless it's there purely for the aesthetics, it'll be like playing with a nerfed M7 and just gimping your own game trying to play vs Tier 8s which you'll most probably go up against half the time, just like the M7 and other Tier 4 light tanks get shafted right now.

Idk bout this vehicle specifically, but there will be tier 5 lights when the christie tanks gets implemented. Germany also gets tier 5 and eventually the french will have tier 7 lights.

The M7 was an experimental tank and never used.
4700 M24s were produced for WWII.
Just thought for the sake of authenticity it would be included.

WoT is not a game about WW2, it is a game about tanks. The M24 is planned to be included but the fact that it was used is not a compelling reason to add it first. As it stands, there IS a compelling reason NOT to add it immediately, though - The other nations don't have one, and given the weird nature of light tanks and the matchmaker, would cause problems.

The M24 served SO late in the war that "most divisions were using their Stuarts to the end before the M24's arrived"

It will come eventually, but as for when, who knows.  There's still also the last few of the TD branch to add
even after the 0.6.5 update a few of the TD's won't be added.  The M24 is also not slated to be out in next update.
Will it be in 6.6 or 6.7? no idea yet.  Just don't be saving money for it any time soon.
