Convoy Mode: Lanchester Armoured Car

This is the MG-equipped vehicle that you will be able to drive in the Convoy mode (mid-September).

The first prototype was introduced by the Lanchester Motors Company in December 1914. The vehicle was intended to protect airfields and save downed pilots. The armoured cars were commisioned to the British forces in 1915, but soon the war became a stalemate and the vehicles turned out hardly effective. A part of the vehicles was sold to the Belgian armed forces and also to the Russian Imperial army.

  1. Alpha Damage: 30 / 500 / 30

    Otherwise looks neat. Though, 90 meters of radio range? What’s that, loud yelling?😀
    (Yes, I know it’s probably signal flags. -_-)

      1. It says incendiary amm. But how would bullets(!!) cause so much freaking damage, even if it’s just an armoured car? This makes no bloody sense to me.

          1. Well, that makes sense, but then again, what’s the point of those power-ups or whatevers a previous article spoke about?
            Something smells fishy here….
