MMG Carrier is a British Recon unit in Steel Division II.

Background[edit source]

Derived from the Carden-Lloyd family of tankettes, the Universal Carrier was one of the most ubiquitous fighting vehicles of the British Commonwealth and, at 113,000 built, the most produced armored fighhting vehicle in history.

The Carrier was designed in 1934, by Vickers-Armstrong, and accepted in limited line service in 1936. However, it wasn't until 1940 that the final Universal design was implemented, becoming the most widespread of Universal Carrier models, powered by an 85 hp Ford V8 petrol engine with a Horstmann suspension giving it excellent maneuverability.

The Carrier was used in a multitude of variants thanks to its ubiquity. The default version had a single Bren gun and enough space for a troop of soldiers, with MMG conversions (Poles used the CKM abbreviation, standing for Ciężki Karabin Maszynowy or Heavy Machine Gun) bearing a Vickers .303 water-cooled machine gun for supporting infantry.

In the motorized companies of Brigade Piron has 6th Platoon who were equipped with Machine Guns.
