Light armored reconnaissance vehicle M-3 SCAUT, became one of the mass machines of this class, in all, 21,000 units were built. Serial production of the M3A1 modification began in 1941 at Ford. The M-3s were in service with the armies of all Allied states in the anti-Hitler coalition. There were many of them in the Allied forces and in the Red Army. The car was carrying eight people, had reservations from bullets and shrapnel.A large-caliber machine gun could be installed in the body.
"Scout" is a light American armored reconnaissance vehicle, widely used on the fronts of the Second World War.
The armored personnel carrier was developed in 1939 on the basis of a standard truck and was intended for transporting infantry on the battlefield, conducting reconnaissance and combat security, as well as towing artillery systems, transporting ammunition and other cargo. It had a fully armored open-top body, in front of which there was an engine, and behind it were located the control compartment and the landing section.
The armored personnel carrier, as a rule, armed with a 12.7-mm machine gun installed above the control department, as well as 2-3 7.62-mm machine guns mounted on the sides. To ensure self-pulling, some machines were equipped with a winch, mounted in front of the engine. To improve the reliability of the chassis used wheels with reinforced multi-layer tires with anti-bullet filler. "Scout Car" had a very high speed on the road (up to 90 km / h), but limited mobility on rough terrain and could not provide adequate mobility to motorized infantry. For this reason, they were not widely used in the US Army, but in large quantities were supplied to the armies of England and Canada. In total, about 21 thousand such machines were manufactured.
