About the Universal Carrier Mk.II|
During World War II, British and Commonwealth armies used a vast number of small sized, fully tracked weapons carriers,
chief among which was the Universal Carrier Mk.II.
The compact, open top vehicle served in a variety of roles on the North African, Italian and West European fronts.
A number of variants were constructed, including models mounted with mortars and flamethrowers, however,
most machines typically carried a Bren light machine gun.
Over 65,000 models were manufactured in Britain, Canada and other Commonwealth countries,
making it one of the most numerous armored vehicles built during WWII.
