5 WEDNESDAY, APRIL 29, 1953 RT.YTHKVTU.E fAP.K.l COUKIKU NEWS PA6B TRIRTBHIf US. Will Scon H,ave \13£>OOMediumTanks \But Reds Have More By ELTON C. FAY AP Military Reporter " WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States will have on hand by the start of this summer about 13,000 medium tanks, still far short of the estimated 40,000 of all types generally credited to Russia. « But, an Army spokesman said today, there is .no intention or desire to match Soviet armor, tank for tank, any more than there is attempt to match the huse Rus- sisn-satellite force man-for-man. Several factors are involved in this planning. If a war should start tomorrow, the spokesman said, "current tooled-up production lines could be accelerated to keep us supi'.ied in quantity with superior tanks." Moreover, Army tacticians do not subscribe to the theory the only way to beat an enemy tank Is .with another tank. The spokesman said that "under certain circumstances, it is true that the best —and, incidentally, the most expensive—way to fight a tank is with another tank." But the Army also relies on other antitank weapons, Including the r e c o 111 e s s rifle with its "shaped charge for penetrating tank armor by a burning action," arid the familiar bazooKa and rifle grenade launcher for close-in fight- Another apparent factor, unmen- tiqned by th/: Army spokesman, Is .that the 13,000-tank figure shown In Defense Department informa- tiijn consists only of medium gun tanks. It does not intlude either the new light tanks, which have Been in volume, production for well over a year, or heavy tanks just gcing into production. The 40,000 estimate for the USSR is presumed to include all categories of tanks, including obsolete ones. Navy Plans •ToPuiHNe Jet Fighter WASHINGTON (/P) — The Navy said today It has tentatively ordered an attack version of the twin-Jet F7U3 Cutlass fighter and will call it the A2U. The Cutlass has been listed bv the Navy as among five new fighters "better than the Russian-buift MIQ15."
