Description Extended Information
 
Schuco SCH3246364 Italian AS-42 Saharianna Armored Car (1:43 Scale) "Neutrals never dominate events. They always sink. Blood alone moves the wheels of history."
- Italian Dictator, Benito Mussolini

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. Item comes in EDG packaging. Sold Out!
