6th Cavalry Regiment – Germany 1945.

Technical Details
4 Crew.
1 M2 – 12.7mm
560Km range.

The M20 is a variant of the M8 Greyhound, with the turret replaced with a low armored open-topped superstructure and an anti-aircraft ring mount for a .50-in M2 heavy machine gun. It was used mainly for command purpose and forward reconnaissance tasks.

Ford produced around 3,680 units during years 1943 and 1944.

The Altaya model don’t make a favor tho this nice vehicle, all details are very basic, the MG, the interior detail and so. The rough aerials don’t contribute at all to beautify the model, so this is not the best in the collection.

Maybe after so many Altaya models in our hands we are tired to see same basic detail and problems in all the models. Their good points are just a few, while poor points are a well bunch. Better options for this vehicle are available in the market, they are expensive, it’s true, but the difference in the quality is also very appreciable.
