But it was more suited to road use than cross-country terrain, During the war, the M3A1s were rarely used in the dangerous role of scout vehicles. Trial versions included the M3A1E1 with a diesel engine, the M3A1E2 with an armoured roof, and the M3A1E3 mounting a 37mm (1.46in) gun on a rotating pedestal.Nearly 21,000 were built and the M3, known as the White scout car, was supplied in large numbers under Lend-Lease to the Soviet Union and to Free French forces. After the war, surplus vehicles were exported to nations in Israel and elsewhere, where they often served for many years.
