The M5 Half-Track is a medium vehicle, available for the Soviet Union in Company of Heroes 2. Its main task is support of infantry through transport and reinforcing on the battlefield. Although initially lightly armored and armed, it can be equipped with anti-aircraft system, which allows it to effectively fight with enemy infantry, light vehicles and planes.

Overview Edit

A powerful anti infantry half-track which can be upgraded with an AA gun. However it cannot pierce armor of tanks and other heavy vehicles. Very weak against anti-tank weaponry due to light armor but is fairly resistant to HMGs, light machine guns and rifles.

Weapons Edit

Troop Transportation and Reinforcement Edit

In addition to its offensive capabilities, the M5 Half-track Transport is a transportation and reinforcement vehicle. You may load up to 12 infantrymen into this halftrack, or two infantry squads. Garrisoned infantry are protected from cold weather, and can fire out of the vehicle. Squads can also be reinforced from the half-track.
