Armoured vehicles on wheels provided an alternative to the ones on tracks. Read no to learn more about their place in the history of tank development!

My favourite was always the Rolls-Royce (as used by Lawrence of Arabia)

U sort of forgot to mention that the Belgian Armoured Corps was sent to Russia in late 1915. (All volunteers)

 

They fought alongside the Russians untill the surrendered in 1917.

To get back home they travelled all they way trough persia, China, across the Pacific, trough the USA and back to Belgium.

You know, there are a few armoured cars that could work in WoT; Britain (& Commonwealth) might even be able to make a decent line - there's the Daimler, the Humber, the AEC, the Coventry, the Rhino (Australian), and the Marmon-Herrington (South African, actually comes in two flavours, the normal 6 wheeled versions, and various 8 wheel prototypes). I suspect Germany might be able to scratch out a line too, but I don't really know enough about German armoured cars to say.

First Swedish armoured cars were the fm/25 and fm/26 from 1925 and 1926 respectively, so bit later than the ones in the article.

I'm pretty sure that the British produced some of the finest wheeled armoured/scout cars in WW2 - e.g. Humber/Dingo/etcetera - I wonder how WG could ruin them to usual level of British rubbishness? :trollface: 

 

Re: German armoured cars, I think they preferred to use early war light tanks for recon.
