Historical Picture
Daimler real

The Daimler Armored Cars were of a related development as the Daimler Scout Cars, with the only practical difference being that the Daimler Armored Cars were equipped with turrets originally made for the Tetrarch light tanks. Although production began in 1939, transmission problems kept them out of service until mid-1941. Their fully independent suspension and four-wheel drive provided them the versatility needed on the front lines. In North Africa, the UK 11th Hussars and the Derbyshire Yeomanry operated them with effectiveness in the desert terrain; units operating these vehicles in Southeast Asia and Europe also reported satisfaction with them. Between 1939 and 1945, 2,694 Daimler Armored Cars were built; they were used by the British until the 1960s, outlasting the planned replacement Coventry armored cars.

Ingame, this vehicle combines high mobility and comparable firepower, though armour is pretty thin, so it is best used for recon and strikes in the enemy rear, just as its straight analogues - German Sd.Kfz. 222 and Sd.Kfz. 234 and AmericanM8 Greyhound.
