The M20 Armored Utility Car was also known as an M20 Scout Car. It was a converted M8 without the revolving turret and meant there was an open top but it did provide a certain amount of protection for the crew from small arms fire or shrapnel. The M20 had a top speed of 90 km/h and was quite agile which made it well suited for forward reconnaissance work. It is estimated that along with heavy Sherman and Stuart losses hundreds of M8s and M20s were lost in the Ardennes.

M20 Armored Utility Car

Designed to fill a need for a fast tank destroyer to replace the M6 37mm Gun Motor Carriage, the M8 Greyhound entered production in March 1943. Used by US and British troops, the M8 had a 37mm M6 gun and a Browning machine gun mounted in an open-topped turret. It was fast and reliable but had poor off-road performance, which meant it was severely limited in muddy and snowy conditions such as those in Northern Europe. When facing German armored vehicles the M8 was formidable but vulnerable-its guns could easily penetrate German armor, but its own thin armor wasn't enough to stop German 20mm autocannons.
