The King Armored Car was manufactured by the Armored Motor Car Company (AMC). It was the first American armored vehicle ever produced. The car had one Lewis Machine Gun (M1895 Colt-Browning on earlier models) mounted in an armored turret to protect the gunner from small arms fire. The car was powered by a V8 Engine allowing it to reach a top speed of 40 Miles per hour.
King Armored Car in Southern Victory Edit
The King Armored Car was first used, with great success, to repulse Confederate Cavalry raids into Kansas during the opening weeks of the Great War. Later, when the US Army was pushing into Sequoyah, they brought the armored cars with them, using them to spear head their assaults. However their tires still proved a liability, which them made them easier targets for artillery.
