AML (Auto Mitrailleuse Légère, or "Light Armoured Car")[3] is a fast, long-ranged, and relatively cheap first-generation armoured car with excellent reconnaissance capability.[7] Designed on a small, lightly armoured 4X4 chassis, it weighs an estimated 5.5 tonnes—much lighter than a tank—and is therefore more suited to rapid airborne deployments.[8] Since 1959 AMLs have been marketed on up to five continents; several variants remained in continuous production for half a century.[9] These have been operated by fifty-four national governments and other entitie

Armored Car (military)
A military armored (or armoured) car is a lightweight wheeled armored fighting vehicle, historically employed for reconnaissance, internal security, armed escort, and other subordinate battlefield tasks.[1] With the gradual decline of mounted cavalry, armored cars were developed for carrying out duties formerly assigned to horsemen.[2] Following the invention of the tank, the armored car remained popular due to its comparatively simplified maintenance and low production cost. It also found favor with several colonial armies as a cheaper weapon for use in underdeveloped regions.[3] During World War II, most armored cars were engineered for reconnaissance and passive observation, while others were devoted to communications tasks

M8 Greyhound
The M8 Light Armored Car is a 6×6 armored car produced by the Ford Motor Company during World War II. It was used by the United States and British troops in Europe and the Far East
Far East
until the end of the war.[1] The vehicle was widely exported and as of 2006[update] still remained in service with some Third World
Third World
countries.[1] In British service, the M8 was known as the "Greyhound", a nickname seldom if ever used by the US. The British Army found it too lightly armored, particularly the hull floor, which anti-tank mines could easily penetrate (the crews' solution was lining the floor of the crew compartment with sandbags). Nevertheless, it was produced in large numbers. The M8 Greyhound's excellent on-road mobility made it a great supportive element in the advancing American and British armored columns

Véhicule D'Action Dans La Profondeur
The Véhicule d'Action dans la Profondeur is a military vehicle built by Panhard.[1] It has an empty weight of 2500 kg and a useful payload of 1500 kg,[2] and is a stealthy vehicle intended for use deep in hostile territory.[3] It is an improvement on the design of the Véhicule Blindé Léger, retaining the armoured floor (for protection against landmines) but with side armour and doors removed. It has a Steyr diesel engine and can be fitted with a variety of weapons.[4] See also[edit]Véhicule Blindé LégerReferences[edit]^ "Panhard General Defense Vehicule d'Action dans la Profondeur (VAP) (France), Special attack vehicles".

Artillery
Artillery
Artillery
is a class of large military weapons built to fire munitions far beyond the range and power of infantry's small arms. Early artillery development focused on the ability to breach fortifications, and led to heavy, fairly immobile siege engines. As technology improved, lighter, more mobile field artillery developed for battlefield use. This development continues today; modern self-propelled artillery vehicles are highly mobile weapons of great versatility providing the largest share of an army's total firepower. In its earliest sense, the word artillery referred to any group of soldiers primarily armed with some form of manufactured weapon or armour. Since the introduction of gunpowder and cannon, the word "artillery" has largely meant cannon, and in contemporary usage, it usually refers to shell-firing guns, howitzers, mortars, rockets and guided missiles

M101 Howitzer
The 105 mm M101A1 howitzer (previously designated M2A1) was an artillery piece developed and used by the United States. It was the standard U.S. light field howitzer in World War II
World War II
and saw action in both the European and Pacific theaters. Entering production in 1941, it quickly gained a reputation for accuracy and a powerful punch. The M101A1 fired 105 mm (4.1 in) high explosive (HE) semi-fixed ammunition and had a range of 12,330 yards (11,270 m), making it suitable for supporting infantry. All of these qualities of the weapon, along with its widespread production, led to its adoption by many countries after the war. Its ammunition type also became the standard for many foreign countries' later models.Contents1 History 2 Variants 3 Self-propelled mounts 4 Ammunition 5 Operators 6 See also 7 Notes 8 References 9 External linksHistory[edit] During the Second World War, U.S
