The American M3 Half-track APC was built since 1942 by the U.S. firms White, Autocar, Diamond T, and later International. It is actually an armored truck in which they replaced the rear axle by a chain suspension. The M3 was designed as a troop carrier (Armored Personnel Carrier), but was also a weapons carrier, for example, for mortars, missiles and anti-aircraft guns. It was delivered to all allied troops and used on all fronts. Overall, about 41,000 units were built, which were up still in the 90's in some armies.

In FHSW, the M3A1 forms the heart of a successful infantry attack. It offers the possibility of many soldiers at once and quickly be brought to the site and provides them with all the necessities. With its gun, it forces the enemy troops in coverage and provides some protection against air raids.
The M3A1 has a few minor improvements over the original game, such as the machine gunner is better protected, since it is lower in the vehicle and only the head is visible. Furthermore, the vehicle is now mostly bulletproof.
Great Britain and the Soviet Union use this truck, but instead of the Browning M2 it is a Bren and DP-machine gun used.
The driver has the option to place a 7.62-mm Browning M1919A4 tripod at tactically favorable positions.
