Developed in the US, the T17 and T17E1 were rejected by the US Army as the M8 was deemed sufficient. At the time of its development, teh British Army was also seeking a medium armoured car for service in North Africa. Designated Staghound, it arrived too late to serve in North Africa and first saw action in Italy. The Mark III replaced the turret with one from a Crusader tank armed with 6pdr gun.
This superb kit comes with extra stowage - jerry cans, ammo crates, bedrolls - and one crew.
