Universal Carrier real

This is the Universal Carrier, but also known as the Bren Gun Carrier. It was a family of light armoured tracked vehicles built by Vickers-Armstrong. They are be produced between 1934 and 1960 and it was used widely by British Commonwealth forces during the Second World War and other country's. The vehicle was sometimes referred to be the best APC of World War Two! They are be designed usually as personnel and equipment transporter. But soon it will be used for carrier support weapons in different types. With some 113,000 built in the United Kingdom, Canada and abroad, it was the most produced armoured fighting vehicle in history. They saw action by the British Commonwealth in Africa, Italy, Europe and even also in the Pacific. But this is not enough! The Soviets also used the Universal Carrier, but only with machineguns and/or anti-tank rifles, since end 1941! Atleast 2.000 vehicles will be used during World War Two by the Soviets. Like said before, they are sometimes referred to be the best APC of World War Two and that can be true! Because they are easy to built, cost not much, it is on tracks so it can well maneuvering, it is fast and strong while jumping. It is able to transport light artillery, equipment or transporting 4 passengers. The low number off passenger and armour is an disadvantage, but if we compare this apc with the USA M3 Halftrack, German Hanomag and much more, you will say this is the best APC of WWII! Atleast twelve variants have be built by British forces but also others like Germany! In FHSW we will have 5 variants ingame (the Universal Carrier Mk.I have lot of different weaponry combination).

Improvised by the Canadians in 1944, this consisted of 14 PIAT projectors mounted on a frame at the rear of the carrier in two series of seven. Each row could be fired simultaneously by means of a mechanical contrivance of steel rods attached to the firing triggers. A few vehicles so fitted were used in Europe in 1944-45 as part of 16 Field Park Comapny, Royal Canadian Engineers, in Zutphen, Netherlands, 1944 and were used to good effect.

GB-PrayingMantis-HomeGuard

The Praying Mantis was an attempt to produce a low-silhouette vehicle that could still fire over obstacles. A one-man design based on Carden-Lloyd suspension was not adopted, but the inventor was encouraged to design a two-man version. This version appeared in 1943 and was based upon the Universal Carrier. The hull was replaced with an enclosed metal-box structure with enough room for a driver and a gunner lying prone. This box, pivoting from the rear, could be elevated. At the top end was a machine-gun turret (with two Bren guns). The intention was to drive the Mantis up to a wall or hedgerow, elevate the gun, and fire over the obstacle from a position of safety. It was rejected after trials in 1944.
