“Forward to Berlin” A column of Red Army M3A1 Scout Cars push ever deeper into the Reich. Manufactured in the United States by White Motor Company and supplied to the Soviet Union and other Allied countries via Lend-Lease, the Red Army used the M3A1 primarily as a reconnaissance vehicle. The US supplied over 3,000 M3A1 Scout Cars to the Soviets where they remained in service there into 1947. Incredibly the M3A1 was still in service in the Dominican Republic up until 1990. #wwii #ww2 #car #vintage #1940s
