While outclassed by more modern tanks, the M5A1 is still extremely useful for securing flanks, screening enemy infantry and armoured cars, using is speed to take advantage of any gaps in the enemy lines.
Armed with a 37mm gun and two machine guns, the Stuart was a danger to enemy infantry. Its speed also allows it to out-manoeuvre slower tanks and exploit their weaker side armour.

A moving tank fitted with a Stabiliser can fire its main gun at its full ROF, but adds a penalty of +1 to the score needed to hit.
Before shooting, a tank can choose not to use its Stabiliser and fire at the normal rate if that would give it a better chance.
