Powered by two Cheverolet 270 engines, the vehicle was armed with a 37mm cannon turret and 3 machine guns - one in the hull, one coaxial with the main gun, and one on the turret for anti-aircraft defense. The arrival of the lighter M8 Greyhound meant that the U.S. Army was no longer interested in the T17E1, but other Allies such as Britain and the Commonwealth forces found the vehicle useful and named it the Staghound. They entered service in Italy in 1943and served until the end of the war. After WWII, they still saw action in areas like the Middle Eastand Central America with various armies. Distinctive angular hull, leaf spring suspension, side hatches and turret hatches can be posed in opened, interior details such as turret basket, radio, 37mm gun, and coaxial machine gun, canvas rolls, jerry cans, roof-mounted machine gun, photoetch, 3 British infantry figures, decals and markings for (5) vehicles.
