Description

The model 42 Desert Vehicle was developed for the Italian Army based on the chassis and mechanics of the AB 41 armored car. Over the course of the operations on the African front, the need arose for a reconnaissance vehicle specially adapted to the desert conditions, where driving on sand required particular features (large size tires at low pressure, height from the ground, extensive autonomy) that were not present on the currently available vehicles. The engineers eliminated the dual running direction typical of the AB 41 and the four-wheel drive. The vehicle was produced in two armament configurations: one with 20 mm cannon/machine gun and the other with 47/32 anti-tank cannon. Several dozen of these vehicles were produced.

Models are supplied unpainted, and some assembly may be required.
