|Notes||The US army expressed the need for a personnel carrier, so they developed the chassis that had been used on the M2 half-track and merged it with a new hull, resulting vehicle was built by White, Autocar and Diamond T and called the M3. It had a longer body than the M2 and could carry a full twelve men Infantry Squad. Unlike the earlier M2 it had rear door access and replaced the skate rail with a pedestal mounted heavy machine gun. The M3 saw extensive service in World War Two and also saw action in the Korean War.|
