The M3 GMC is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 1942: The Road to Rome as an Allied self-propelled artillery piece.
The driver, aside from commandeering the vehicle, is able to fire the 75mm gun. This gun is slightly weak compared to other artillery pieces, being a little bit more damaging than a regular tank shell. The driver makes up for this by being able to both fire and drive at the same time, much like in a tank. The second passenger mans a M2 Browning at the back of the vehicle. Finally, the GMC can carry one additional passenger, who does not have weapons at his disposal and cannot use his equipment.
The vehicle combines the power and velocity of a tank cannon with the armour and superior speed of an APC. Unlike APCs, it will not ressuply or heal its passengers.
