  • Your M3 is a spawn-point for the rest of your squad. Try to conceal the location. Use riverbanks, trees, hills, or other terrain masking to prevent the enemy from locating it.
  • Do not unlock friendly APCs. Doing so will not let your team spawn on it, and will remove the spawn capability from the APC.
  • Enemies love to camp these spawn-points. Be alert when spawning, and check your surroundings. If you are killed when spawning, let the rest of your team know!
  • If you find numerous enemies seemingly coming from a direction that is unnatural based on the map you are playing, take a friendly along and scout the area for a German Sonderkraftfahrzeug 250/3 (the German equivalent to the American M3 Half-track).
  • Holding crouch lets you to lower the driver's bullet proof shield.
  • The machine gun sports a 100 round magazine, can spin 360 degrees, and kills infantry in 2 shots. It is also quite effective against aircraft. However, do not fire without imminent danger, as it will reveal the location of the vehicle and attract enemies over to destroy it.
  • The M3 Halftrack and the MiG-7 Medium Fighter are the only Soviet vehicles to sport a 12.7mm machine gun.
  • For more information, refer to Reto.Gargamel's APC guide, The ABC of APCs.
