Heroes & Generals Wiki


The M8 Greyhound is a small armored car used primarily for reconnaissance. It is fast in rough terrain and with a 37mm main gun it packs a serious punch for such a small vehicle. It is very vulnerable to landmines.

  • The driver's seat on the grayhound is widely exposed from the front and the driver is prone to being easily shot/sniped. Make sure to use the cover button to close up the armor slit on the front when necessary.
  • The armor on this vehicle is only decent enough to protect against small arms fire. Enemy tanks are very challenging to tackle and avoiding engagement is recommended.
  • Never park out in the middle of a field unless the enemies are out of armored vehicles.
  • The German SdKfz 234/2 "Puma" is a huge threat to the Greyhound, boasting better firepower than it. Be sure to control the engagement if you encounter one.
