M3 Half-track (M16 MGMC) (Lend-Lease)
This half-track armored vehicle, compliments of the U.S. Army, was well suited as an anti-aircraft gun.
The M3 modification featured a quad mount with four M2HB Browning machine guns.
The APC's M2/M3 Halftrack chassis proved quite versatile. Its anti-aircraft gun was electrically fired, and had a target ceiling of 1500-2000m. It was actively used against light armored vehicles as well.
A total of 2877 of these vehicles were released, and were supplied to the USSR under the Lend-Lease program. Red Army reappointed them "M17" after slight modifications. One thousand units were delivered in total.
