The Universal Carrier was developed during the interwar period and was the main armored personnel carrier used by British Commonwealth forces. A total of 90,000 vehicles were produced from 1937 through 1945. Versions of the Universal Carriers were used for transporting personnel and equipment, as machine gun platforms, and for reconnaissance purposes. In 1940, a variant with a 40-mm anti-tank gun was developed.

Performance

This little Tier 2 powerhouse TD is the first in the British AT line. Though it is a far cry from the later tanks in terms of armor, it has a powerful selection of guns. The UC has a fairly easy stock grind, as the 2 Pounder is a capable gun, but the first 6 Pounder is inaccurate and has a long aiming time. It is best to use the 2 pdr until unlocking the second 6 pdr, which is unbelievably powerful.

This machine is best used from a concealed posistion or in a support role. It can be penetrated easily by HE shells, even from Tier 1 guns. By utilizing the stealth and agility of this TD, you can become a top player in any battle.
