BA-6 (SU300) BA-6 (SU300)
includes two BA-6 Armoured Cars & two Vehicle Commanders.

Experiences with armoured cars during the Russian Civil War (1917-1922) meant that the Soviets had a great deal of interest in the development of more modern designs during the 1930s. In the eyes of the Soviets, armoured cars fell into one of two categories; light or heavy. Light armoured cars were to be armed with machine-guns while heavy armoured cars were armed with guns in the calibre ranges of 37mm – 47mm.

BA-6 (SU300) The BA-1 was the forerunner to the BA-6 and was based on the imported Ford-Timken lorry chassis. Only a handful of prototype vehicles were built and before mass production could begin the new GAZ-AAA lorry chassis became available; forming the basis of a new design. Known as the BA-3, the new armoured car was armed with the turret of the T-26 obr 1933 light tank. However, the BA-3 was short lived as it was quickly discovered that the chassis proved inadequate.
To remedy this issue, engineers quickly strengthened the rear suspension; added a new transmission and designed a lighter armoured body. The resulting vehicle was designated the BA-6. Outwardly, the BA-6 appeared very similar to the BA-3 however the BA-6 lacked the right rear access door that is visible on the BA-3.

Limited Vision
In order to pack more into small tanks, some tank designers reduced the crew to a minimum and severely
limited the number of vision devices. Thus, the tanks require the commander to operate as a somewhat vision-impaired gunner as well.

Tanks with Limited Vision add +1 to the score required to hit when shooting any weapon except an AA MG at
targets that are entirely behind a line drawn across the front of the tank’s turret before they rotate their turret to face the target.

Tanks with Limited Vision must rotate their turret to point straight ahead when they move.

Armoured cars are used in large numbers by the Red Army, usually as wheeled tanks. The Mongolians also use them in much the same way as the Red Army.

If they are used to do any scouting it is in the un-subtle Red Army method of simply driving until engaged by the enemy, with the sound of the fighting alerting the commander to the presence of an enemy unit.
