The new US M3A2 Pondskater scout walker is reconnoitring the area and providing essential intel on the enemies positions.
As the US Army fought the Germans in France, their reconnaissance forces had to rapidly refine their skills in the face of experienced German opposition. The demand for an agile walker led to the creation of the M3A2 Pondskater.
Designed with reconnaissance in mind, the Pondskater has a two-man crew, is amphibious with minor field modifications, has an extensive radio range and is both fast and agile.
Although capable of mounting an additional .50 cal machine gun or even replacing the machine guns with a recoilless rifle, the US Army has largely maintained the single .50 cal machine gun as adequate for the Pondskater’s recce role.
Meanwhile, in the Pacific, the USMC readily accepted the Pondskater as the ideal scouting platform to accompany their Island raider special units. Its amphibious ability allows it to cross almost any battlefield terrain and cope with most conditions in the close confines of the jungle.
