Bring troops to the front or tow artillery pieces into line with the new resin Lend Lease Soviet M3 White Scout Car.
The M3 was too large and heavy to be considered a proper scout car, but its transport capacity (eight men and a driver) made it suitable for a number of tasks including that of armoured transport and reconnaissance vehicle. The same basic design was used to develop the M3 half-track. Although the White Scout Car carried an HMG it was often fitted with a further two MMGs along the sides. The M3 Scout Car was used by the Americans, British and Russians.
In Bolt Action this is a cheap an simple solution to deal with those annoying enemy recon units or slow lightly equipped troop formations. An inexpensive way to advance quickly on a road to leave its occupants to capture an objective!
