Background[edit | edit source]

Daimler Armoured Car is a British armored vehicle in Post Scriptum. It is equipped with a Ordnance 40 mm QF 2 pounder, that only fires Armor Piercing rounds. The secondary weapon is a 7.92mm BESA MG. It is operated by a crew of 3; driver, gunner and commander.

The vehicle has access to 52 APCBC rounds for the main gun and 11 boxes of 250 rounds for the coaxial.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Daimler Armoured Car is a fast wheeled armored scout car best used as a forward observer. This vehicle reaches around 70 km/h which makes it a terrific asset for hunting MSPs and FOBs. Spotting and hunting armor is also an option. Its 40 mm main gun can penetrate any German tank, except for the beastly Tiger Tank, which is too heavily armored. The Daimler does not carry HE rounds which makes it badly suited for direct infantry support. The main gun has an incredibly fast reload. But the turret rotation is fairly slow because it's hand-cranked.

The Daimler's armor is inadequate and thin and does not have many slopes. As little as 5 rounds of 20 mm fire can destroy the vehicle completely. Going into cities and villages is a big risk. One panzerschreck or panzerfaust rocket can take it out with one direct hit as well. Engaging tanks should happen from the sides or rear. Front-to-front combat is not advised in this quick tin-can. Use the speed to your advantage.
