Alternative transport solutions to hotdrop infantries would indeed be welcome:

  • Jeeps and M5 halftrack for the US
  • Universal carrier and Kangaroo for the UK
  • 1940 Stoewer Typ 40 [Kfz. 1] and Kübelwagen for the AXIS
  • Lorraine Type 72 for FRANCE

 

Other cool transport stuff:

  • SdKfz 2 and Sidecar BMW R75 for the AXIS 
  • 1939 Gnome-Rhone AX2 for FRANCE
  • Landing Craft and DUKW (amphibious) for the navy US and UK

M3 was more common, and would better fit the 3D-model secondary artwork (M16, etc.) available to CRS.

  • Universal carrier and Kangaroo for the UK

Sherman Kangaroo, since the Ram isn't modeled yet. No small wheeled vehicle for the Brits...the Austin Tilly was their most common small utility vehicle, and it had poor offroad capability.

  • 1940 Stoewer Typ 40 [Kfz. 1] and Kübelwagen for the AXIS

The APC elements of this list are set-fill-ins. The Germans already have an element of the armored-APC set, the SdKfz 251. No need for the Stoewer.

  • Lorraine Type 72 for FRANCE

Lorraine Type 72 is a poor choice for the French--it's a medium passenger van, not an offroad utility vehicle. Much better to choose the Laffly V10, the French vehicle most directly comparable to the Jeep:

The French also need an armored APC. Clearly IMO that should be the Lorraine 39. It was just coming into service in mid 1940, with the production contract in place, so it clearly met the old-CRS condition for game eligibility:

M5 halftrack yes ,   the Jeep and the SdFz 251 aka halftrack are not comparable at all . 

Jeep and Kübelwagen u got 2 Vehicles that compare , same with the M5 and the German halftrack. 

 

So call for the M5 instead .

M3

Does it matter?

A key variant of the American HT will be the quad M2HB SPAA vehicle. The M3 was the basis for the M16, used by US Army. The M5 was the basis for the M17, the entire production run of which went to the Soviet Union.

M3 has Ma Deuce pointing forwards

Actually both could have the M49 MG mount.
