Description

Lorraine 38L Armored Carrier with two one-piece resin Lorraine 38L Armored Carriers, four AA MG figures & four sets of passenger figures.

A peleton de chasseurs portes (light mechanized cavalry platoon) is composed of well-trained, well-equipped and well-armed troops with twice the number of light machine-guns as normal infantry. More importantly each squad of chasseurs is carried to battle in a Lorraine VBCP (Voiture Blinde de Chasseurs Portes) 38L.

Based on a supply carrier, the Lorraine 37L Tracteur de Ravitaillement, it can carry up to ten men—four men in an armored cargo bay and six more in an armored trailer.

This made the French Army the only combatant during the Battle for France fielding battalions mounted in fully-tracked armored personnel carriers, and the only country with whole battalions of infantry in armored personnel carriers in each of their armored divisions at the start of the war.

Miniatures are provided unpainted and may require assembly.
