During World War II, the Autoblinda AB 41 operated in North Africa, the Balkans, Italy, Hungary, and on the Eastern Front. It proved highly suitable for reconnaissance, escort and security duties. The AB 41 could be quickly adapted for operation on any terrain. Sand tires could be fitted for desert work and it could even run on railway tracks. The rail-converted vehicles were primarily used in anti-partisan patrols in the Balkans.

Armed with a 20mm Breda gun and backed up by a co-axial machine gun and a further machine gun mounted facing rearwards for when the AB41 was driven in reverse (make your own gags…). There was a secondary driving position for occasions when the vehicle was driven in reverse.

The great-looking vehicle also served the German armed forces well too. After the Italian armistice the Germans captured over 50 AB41s and went on to build a further 120, giving them the designation Panzerspähwagen AB41 201.

Please note: Miniature comes un-painted and some assembly will be required.
