Are there any cards around for the Humber with the turret mounted with the 37mm gun?

The AV stats on the above Staghound III are wrong. 6-pounder AV stats are 11/9/8.

:bowty: Thanks Pletch. I've been considering scratch building the Stag III when I get some free time.

Thanks. I was thinking around 11-12 points. Is the change in the frontal armor a typo or intentional?

The Humber Scout Car and Humber Armored Car are in fact two different vehicles. This confusion led to a lot of unnecessary griping at WOTC back in the beginning of AAM. The Scout Car has 30mm of frontal armor and the Armored Car has 15mm.

Generally, vehicle armor correlates strongly to AAM numbers below 50mm:
No armor: 1
1mm-20mm = 2
21-30 = 3
31-40 = 4
41-50 = 5

The correlation ends here with armor levels 6, 7, and 8 representing much larger variations in thickness: 30mm-40mm per level or greater. Definitely a situation where correlation does not equal causation.

The stats are for the FoW Humber III / IV Flames of War BR323. Would this model have 2/2 or 3/2?

FoW book Afrika puts frontal armor of the Humber III at 1 and side armor at 0. For AAM, I'd interpret that as 2/2.

Below is my rendition of my Humber Mk IV card. These were mounted with a turret and a 37mm us gun like the M5. The secondary armament was a 7.92 Besa MG. They were used in recon and as command vehicles by the commonwealth. The almost exact Canadian copy was called the "Fox" armored car.

A few notes. I selected 3/2 as armor for it despite the excellent comparison Pletch gave that would of given it 2/2 armor. Since the armor is so well sloped it has much more survival chance than say a half track with a flat hull and 12.7 mm of armor. To give it superior armor is silly so I went halfway in between a took the WotC value.
