About the M8 Greyhound Originally designed to meet a requirement for a fast tank destroyer, the M8 was a lightly armored6X6 vehicle armed with a 37mm main gun and coaxial 30 caliber machine gun in its open turret,and a 50 caliber machine gun on a flexible mount. Newer tank designs soon made the 37mmgun obsolete as an anti-tank weapon, but the vehicle s speed was useful for reconnaissanceduties so it was used primarily in that role by the Allied forces in WWII. The M8 then went on toserve in the Korean conflict and French Indochina, and updated versions can still be found inservice today in a few corners of the world.
