The Otter Light Reconnaissance Car was developed by General Motors Canada to meet the demand for an armored car. The design followed the layout of the British Humber Mark III LRC. The Otter was based on the Chevrolet C15 Canadian Military Pattern truck chassis and used many standard GM components. The armament consisted of a hull-mounted Boys anti-tank rifle and a Bren light machine gun in a small open topped turret. Although it used a more powerful engine than the Humber, it was larger and heavier, and its overall performance was less than the Humber but still acceptable. Between 1942 and 1945, 1761 units were produced in Oshawa, Ontario, though fewer than 1,000 were delivered overseas. The Otter served with Canadian units in the Italian Campaign and Northwest European operations. It was also employed by the British Army and the RAF Regiment. Some RAF regiment vehicles used aircraft armament such as 20mm cannons and 0.303 Browning machine guns. After the war the Otter was used by the Jordanian Army and Dutch Army during the Indonesian Revolution.

*This is a detail set only, meant to upgrade the Mirror Models Mk.I Otter light recon car. Full kit sold separately.
