BA-20 Armoured Car (SU303) It wasn’t until the availability of the GAZ-M1 chassis that the concept of the BA-20 armoured car could be realised.

The BA-20 served the Red Army from 1936 and was the most abundant armoured car in service during the years leading up to the Second World War. First seeing combat against the Japanese during the Nomonhan Incident, it continued to serve the Red Army during the invasion of Poland; against the Finns during the Winter War and against the Germans during the opening stages of the Great Patriotic War.

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.
