Armored car Ba -3 mod. 1934

(Broneavtomobil 3) was an armored car developed in the Soviet Union in the early 1930s. The 45mm gun turret was the same as that used on the T-26 and BT-5 light tanks. It was built on the GAZ-AAA chassis. This 6 X 4 chassis was a modification of the US Ford AA 4 X 2 truck. This chassis limited mobility to roads or very hard ground. Mobility could be improved slightly by fitting tracks to the rear pair of dual wheels, making this car a convertible half-track.

The BA-3 is very similar to the later BA-6; the BA-3 has a door in the right rear of the hull that is not present on the BA-6. Both cars were superceded by the later BA-10. All cars of this series were very heavily armed for the era; they could knock out other recon vehicles with ease. However, their thin armor made them vulnerable to heavy machinegun fire and small caliber cannon fire.

The BA-3 was used in combat against the Japanese at Khalkin-Gol, in the Spanish Civil War and in the early stages of fighting on the Eastern Front against the Germans. Ironically the German Army used a few Spanish-built six-wheeled armored cars that were close copies of the BA-3/6 series. The heavy scout vehicle role was taken over by light tanks such as the T-60 and T-70 later in the war.
