Description Extended Information
 
Schuco SCH3246366 British Morris Portee Gun Truck (1:43 Scale) "Neutrals never dominate events. They always sink. Blood alone moves the wheels of history."
- Italian Dictator, Benito Mussolini

A portee is a truck that carries a gun on its bed that has three characteristics:

- the gun is not permanently affixed to the vehicle
- the gun can be quickly unloaded
- the gun can be fired from the truck.

While the term portee can be used to denote any truck carrying a gun on its bed, it is most often used to describe the portees used by the British/Commonwealth forces in the North African Campaign of World War II. On 21 November 1941 at Sidi Rezegh, Libya Second Lieutenant Gunn destroyed 2 German tanks while fighting from a burning 2 pounder portee. He was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross for his valour in this action. Sold Out!
