Restock: M3A1 Half-Track – Armored Personnel Carrier


About the M3A1:

The M3A1 Half-track was the main troop transport vehicle for the US Army during World War II and the Korean War. The M3A1 Half-track was designed to carry an entire rifle squad and their equipment (they would often tow a trailer with equipment, fuel, water or ammunition). The M3A1 was fitted with an armored “pulpit” mount for a M2HB heavy machine gun and had three pintle mounts for additional machine guns. The M3A1 was the most advanced version of personnel carriers of the M3 Halftrack family, of which more than 40,000 of all types were manufactured during World War II.
