Armored Car T17 Deerhound.

The drivers' vision doors are open on this T17, and the assistant driver's door in the side of the hull can also be seen. The drivers had plastic-protected vision slots closed by steel shutters in their vision doors for forward vision, and periscopes for when the shutters were closed. The barrel of the coaxial machine gun is visible to the 37mm gun's right. The bow MG is inboard of the right-hand headlight, and the vehicle's siren is mounted inboard of the driver's side headlight.

The drivers' vision doors are again open in this image, along with the turret pistol ports. The turret was provided with two roof hatches. The gunner used a sighting periscope mounted to the left of the 37mm gun; this persicope had an integral sighting telescope. Stowage boxes line the fenders, and the engine air intake can be seen behind the turret. (Picture from TM 9-740 Armored Car T17.)

The positions of the vehicle's gear shifter are illustrated here. Either transmission could be disconnected and kept in neutral, allowing the vehicle to run on a single engine. To accomplish this, with the gear shift lever in neutral, the sliding button was moved to the forward or rear positions. (Picture from TM 9-740 Armored Car T17.)

The transfer case controls are shown here. The short lever engaged the front axle, and this was accomplished with the vehicle moving slowly. The long lever toggled between high and low ranges for both or either engine. The front axle was always engaged before low gear was engaged. (Picture from TM 9-740 Armored Car T17.)
