The M3 Scout Car was first produced in 1938.  It was used during the North African campaign for scouting, but then was largely relegated to secondary duties.
Initially, the scout car was primarily used by armoured and reconnaissance units. But as it was more suited to road use than cross-country the M2 half-track was developed.
This vehicle could carry eight and  was armed with a .50 M2 machine gun in the front & two .30 1917 Brownings in the rear. All three guns were mounted on a skate rail that followed the circumference of the fighting compartment and the three machine guns combined, could bring down a lot of fire on a target in any direction.

M3A1 Armored Scout Car in Flames of War

In Flames of War the M3 Scout Car tends to get used in one of two roles, recon or MG carrier. It excels at both and the .50cal AT4 can make short work of other light vehicles also. A very worthwhile addition to US forces.
