M20 Armored Utility Car
The M20 Armored Utility
Car, also known as the M20 Scout Car, was a Greyhound with the turret removed.
This was replaced with a low, armored open-topped superstructure and an
AA ring mount for a .50 caliber M2 heavy machinegun AA. A bazooka was provided
for the crew to compensate for its lack of anti-armor weaponry. The M20
was primarily used as a command vehicle and for forward reconnaissance,
but many vehicles also served as APCs and cargo carriers. It offered high
speed and excellent mobility, along with a degree of protection against
small arms fire and shrapnel. When employed in the command and control role,
the M20 was fitted with additional radio equipment. Originally designated
the M10 Armored Utility Car, it was redesignated M20 to avoid confusion
with the M10 Wolverine tank destroyer. 3,680 M20s were built by Ford during
its two years in production
