Pros and Cons
- Gun range: 500 m.
- Large gun arc.
- Great accuracy,only FT BS and SU-8 is better.
- Good Power/weight ratio.
- High dispersion while moving/turning.
- Slow shell traveltime.
- Open front and top (In fact, almost everything is exposed).
- Shells can't fly through the interior because of an invisible zero armor zone.
This SPG is a fun artillery piece. Its gun is somewhat low-damaged, but it fires quickly which helps to keep enemies pinned down in certain situations. The Loyd Gun Carriage is a low profile machine and is surprisingly maneuverable so it will not find it difficult to reach small bushes or areas of rubble with which it can hide itself. The Q.F. 13-Pr. Mk. III comes with a decent 42mm of penetration will have no problem punching through the lightly armored targets you will be facing with this SPG. The 165 average damage is also nice.The reload on this SPG is not bad at 6.67 rounds a minute. This is right in the middle for tier 2 SPG's as only the SU-18 (7.5 rounds) and RenaultBS (7.69 rounds) fire quicker. Its reload beats the T57 (6.38 rounds) and the G.Pz. Mk. VI(e) (2.22 rounds). The view range of the Loyd Gun Carriage is also superb for its tier at 320m. When compared to other SPG's at this tier, they fall in at 260-280m. The LGC is 40m better off than its peers.If necessary the the LGC can spot its own targets later on in a game much more effectively than its counterparts.
- Nothing carries over from the Vickers Medium Mk. I.
- First, research the Ford V8-221 Engine.
- Reseacrh the WS No. 11 Radio, followed by the WS No. 9 Radio.
- Finally, research the Loyd Carrier Mk. II Suspension.
The Loyd Carrier was built upon the mechanicals (engine, gearbox and transmission) of a 15 cwt 4x2 Fordson 7V truck with mild steel bodywork to which armour plate (referred to as 'BP Plate' in Loyd manuals) was bolted (to the front and upper sides) depending on application. The engine was at the rear of the Carrier with the radiator behind rather than in front. The transmission then took the drive forward to the axle at the very front where it drove the tracks. Both the front drive sprockets and idlers (which were also sprocketed) at the rear of the tracks were fitted with brakes, actuated by a pair of levers by the driver. To turn the vehicle to the left, the brakes were applied on that side and the Carrier would slew round the stopped track. The upper hull covered the front and sides but was open to the rear and above; as the Carrier was not expected to function as a fighting vehicle this was not an issue. To protect the occupants from the weather a canvas tilt could be put up; this was standard fitment from the factory. As part of the rapid development program and use of pre-designed parts the Loyd used parts from other vehicles. From the Universal Carrier the track, drive sprockets, and suspension units. From the Fordson 7V, the chassis, engine, gearbox, torque tube, axle and brakes.The Army tested the Loyd Carrier in 1939 and placed an initial order for 200 as the Carrier, Tracked, Personnel Carrying i.e. a personnel carrier. Initial deliveries were from Vivian Loyd's own company but production moved to the larger firms including the Ford Motor Company and Wolseley Motors ( 13,000 between them) and Dennis Brothers Ltd, Aveling & Barford and Sentinel Waggon Works. Total production of the Loyd Carrier was approximately 26,000
