The Lynx Scout Car was similar to the British Daimler Dingo, which was also supplied to Canadian Forces, but was built in Canada by Ford Motor Company, featuring a rear-mounted engine and four-wheel-drive. The Ford V8 engine made it more powerful than its British counterpart, though the transmission and independent suspension of the British vehicle was superior to the Canadian Lynx.Production began in 1942 and by 1945 3,255 Lynxes were produced by Ford at Windsor, Ontario. Australia also had 171 Lynx supplied under the Canadian Mutual Aid (CMA) scheme.
Ingame, it is a fast and lightly-armored vehicle with space for two players, and is intended for quick transport. The Lynx has notably more protection for the players inside it, as it has a hull piece that protects most of their bodies.
