The Staghound was a family of armored cars operated by the armed forces of the British Commonwealth during World War II. The design for the Staghound was American and produced in the United States to support the allied war effort. The Staghound started off as the Chevrolet T17E1, which was undergoing evaluation against the Ford T17 in mid-1941 to address a requirement for an armored scout vehicle. Both designs ultimately lost out to the M8 Greyhound, but the Chevrolet design was adopted by the British Army and designated Staghound. The anti-aircraft variant of the Staghound was based upon the same T17E1 chasis and main hull, but the turret was replaced with an open-top type that was armed with two Browning .50 caliber machine guns that allowed for quick traverse and elevation tracking of threat aircraft.
