According to my resources that is an M2A2 "Mae West" Combat Car or Light Tank, the twin turrets were a common feature in the 1930's and is what distinguishes this from the M2A1 which had only one turret. The difference between the Combat Car and Light tank is that in the 20-30's the cavalry could not have tanks due to Congress, so they simply renamed them. Since this is in a Infantry tank Company it is probably a safe bet it is a light tank. This is a predecessor of the M3 Stewart and was used in training early in ww2 but to my knowledge never saw combat.
