Although still using the same Humber 8 cwt 4x2 chassis as the Humber LRC Mark I, the Mark II had improved ride, and a turret for a BREN light machine gun. Although it is sometimes difficult to tell a Mark II from a Mark III LRC, the forward fender of the Mark II runs along the line of the armor angle of the front of the vehicle (lower at the front, higher at the rear); while the Humber LRC Mark III fender is lower and runs in a straight line.
