The AS-42 was an unusual but highly successful vehicle derived from the AB 41 armored car with some improved features found in the AB 43. Primarily used as a reconnaissance vehicle and designed for operations in North Africa, the AS-42 would eventually see service in a variety of other roles including pursuit of raiding parties and operation behind enemy lines. The vehicle was commonly known as La Sahariana and was equipped with a plethora of armament including 20mm AA guns, 13.2 heavy machine guns, 20mm Solothurn anti-tank guns, and occasionally a 37mm anti-tank gun. Local improvisions occured as well depending upon the situation and was even used by RSI paratroopers after the Italian surrender in late 1943. Sold Out!
