White Half Track M3A2

Detail

Based on the scout car chassis, the half-track version simply replaced the rear 2 wheels with a suspension unit and tracks.

This improved the vehicles cross country performance and also increased passenger capacity from 6 to 12.

The half-track was probably one of the most useful vehicles of the war and was employed in a multitude of roles including that of armoured personnel carrier, mobile repair vehicle and self-propelled gun mount.

About 41,000 were made in total.
