In military science, a soft-skinned vehicle is any vehicle that is not armored. This includes trucks, motorcycles, jeeps and cars. It can also include half-tracks and scouting vehicles, if they have little or no armor, but it is more likely to be a regular production model.[clarification needed] These can be used as general purpose workhorses, like a 53-seater coach or pick-up, a military police vehicle, or a car used for undercover work on the home front.
