Light Armored Car M38 Wolfhound.

Compared to the M8 armored car it was designed to replace, the M38 possessed oversized tires and evenly spaced axles which conferred a large mobility advantage. The 3-man turret was open-topped, and a .30cal machine gun is mounted on the antiaircraft pedestal in this image. The driver was offset to the left, and his hood swung to the right up towards the turret when opened. A radio bustle was provided in the rear of the turret, and a second antenna mount was found at the back of the bustle.
