Overview of user countries and units after World War II



Great Britain
The British Army used Staghounds until the late 1940s and they were subsequently sold to the Allied armies.
British troops with whom Staghounds served after the end of World War II :


4th Reconnaissance Regiment (Greece)
23rd Armoured Brigade (Greece)
1st Royal Dragoon Guards Regiment -1st King's Dragoon Guards (Egypt, Lebanon,Syria)


Australia
In service from 08/1943, the number of vehicles reached 279 in 1944. However, they were never deployed in combat, and after the end of II. War they were used mainly for training purposes. By the late 1970s, the last 36 units had reached the end of their service life.


Regular Army
1st Armoured Car Squadron
The squadron operated as part of the British Commonwealth Occupation Force Japan and was armed with 16 vehicles (other sources give 18).The unit was formed at Puckapunyal on 21 January 1946 and sailed for Japan in April. It operated in Japan until December 1948, then returned to Australia and was renamed the 1st Armoured Regiment.


Reserve units
3./9. Light Horse Regiment (South Australian Mounted Rifles) - 3rd/9th Light Horse (South Australian Mounted Rifles)
1./15. Royal New South Wales Lancers - 1st/15th Royal New South Wales Lancers
12th/16th Hunter River Lancers



Denmark
8 Staghound Mk.III 75mm were handed over to the Danes in 1946 and were retired from service in 1953.


Netherlands
The Dutch Army received 108 vehicles After active service ended, they were encased in concrete and used for stationary airfield defence.


Greece
The Greeks took over a small number of vehicles from the British troops that served here in the 1940s.


Italy
Since 1945, more than 100 Staghounds have been included in the armament of the Italian Army and Carabinieri. After being taken out of the army's arsenal, 60 machines were assigned to the police, where the 37mm gun was replaced by the Breda Mod 35 machine gun.


Cavaleria Blindata della Somalia as part of the UN forces serving in Somalia from 1950 to the mid-1950s.


Policia di Stato - Reparti Celere - Special Police Rapid Response Units


Switzerland
Switzerland purchased 64 Staghounds in the early 1950s in the UK, where they were rearmed with a 20 mm gun or 4.7 cm Panzerabwehrkanone 41.


Egypt
50 pieces


Syria
52 pieces



Sudan
Several pieces were commissioned and were modified using the turret of the AEC Mk III armoured vehicle and armed with 75mm Sherman tank guns.
Saudi Arabia


Rhodesia
Rhodesian Armoured Car Regiment
was reformed after the end of World War II and equipped with 20 Staghounds, where they operated until the 1950s. After the regiment was disbanded, they were transferred to the support group of the 1st Rhodesian Light Infantry Regiment (1st Rhodesian Light Infantry) for border protection.



Transjordan


Lebanon
56 units of various versions have served with the army and police since 1955. They were involved in fighting in the civil war on all sides and were still active until recently. 16 pieces were modified using the turret of the AEC Mk III armoured vehicle.


Israel
The Israel Defense Forces acquired 112 demilitarized vehicles from Britain, excluding guns and radios for reconnaissance units. The machines were delivered in stages between December 1951 and early 1953. However, the Israelis were unable to obtain suitable 37mm guns for these machines; they were only able to do so in 1955, when they purchased 100 pieces of suitable armament. At that time, they had already begun equipping their reconnaissance units with French AMX-13s. Therefore, the requirement was reduced to 36 machines and the following units were armed with them


181st Reconnaissance Battalion
182nd Reconnaissance Battalion


The fate of the remaining Israeli Staghounds was particularly curious. The Israeli government offered them for sale through arms dealer Isaac
Irving Davidson. Davidson was well connected to Anastasio Somoza's regime in Nicaragua and Fulgecia Batista in Cuba. In 1957, the Israeli government approved the sale of 68 rifles to Somoza in return for supplying Israel with rifles during the 1948 embargo. Davidson subsequently arranged a trade between Nicaragua and Cuba, which thus acquired 28 originally Israeli Staghounds.


Nicaragua
40 vehicles served with the National Guard, specifically the 1o Battalón Blindado
with their original armament until the late 1960s, and were subsequently rearmed with American-made 0.50 machine guns due to ammunition shortages. In 1979, after Somoza fled the country, about 20 Staghounds were still operational and were replaced by Soviet equipment from 1981 onwards.


Cuba
The Batista regime acquired 28 originally Israeli Staghounds via Nicaragua, and similarly several others from Egypt. The vehicles were heavily used during the civil war, yet some survived it and were subsequently used by the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces.



Honduras
Honduras acquired several units from the US during 1951, which the US Army used, as test vehicles.
