The total production number reached some 60 000 examples which served with the British Army, Raf as well as with the Royal Navy until the end of the 1950s. In the war times, these vehicles offered support to British forces in Western Europe, Africa and elswhere too. Many units composed of overseas personnel also got these vehicles, for domestic modeller might be of interest that the WOT2s served with the Czechoslovak Independent Armoured Brigade. Some of the WOT2s were also captured by the Germans and were put to rather extensive use with the Wehrmacht. In the post war period, some of the WOT2s went further still to other armies.
