Combat Car M1.

This combat car M1, serial number 32, is topped by the early, D-shaped turret. The anti-aircraft machine gun mount can be seen on the turret's left rear. This vehicle is armed with a .50cal MG in the turret's left-side M15 mount, and .30cal MGs in the right side of the turret and in the M8 bow MG mount. The crossed sabre emblem of the Cavalry can be seen just above the turret pistol port. The chromed siren can be seen behind the barrel of the bow machine gun.

Combat Car M1A1.

This M1A1 combat car showcases the octagonal turret fitted to later vehicles. The increased distance between the suspension bogies and the more rearward position of the idler are obvious when compared with the vehicle above. This combat car has all machine guns fitted, and all of the drivers' doors are open as well. The folding roof panels are positioned to provide protected vision for the turret crew.
