Default Which vehicles lead a Cav push?

We've all probably wrestled with the scenario of being tight on time in order to secure some victory hexes during a game. My question pertaining to this dilemma is what was done back in WWII in reality when one has some vehicles to push down a road to look ahead excluding infantry units or soft-bodied transports.

Anyone have a sense for what order vehicles would take in a line of mixed vehicles of tanks and halftracks exclusively? Would a commander in the RL order an expensive tank to lead the column with its beefier armor or would a commander lead with a less expensive though thinner skinned halftrack? Also assume that the area has not been reconnoitered, maybe there's varying degrees of AT units in the enemies arsenal, big bore, small bore, shouldered weapons, etc.

1. I'm interested in containing the question to the RL during WWII for that combination in of vehicles; tanks and halftracks, no soft-bodied vehicles; jeeps, horses, etc, nor infantry.

2. Then for 'fun', what would our gamers do given that choice in a SPWW2 game?
