Description Extended Information
 
Schuco SCH3246375 Italian Ansaldo AB41 Armored Car (1:43 Scale) "Neutrals never dominate events. They always sink. Blood alone moves the wheels of history."
- Italian Dictator, Benito Mussolini

The AB 40 was developed by Spa and Ansaldo at the time of the Spanish Civil War to replace the aging Lancia I.Z. armored car. The first prototype was tested in mid 1939. The vehicle had a number of unique features - especially in it's steering and suspension. The car had a 4 wheel drive and all wheels, which had independent springs, were steerable. The AB 40 could be driven in either direction using it's dual steering system. The wheels on the hull sides were actually spares but were mounted in a "free wheeling" way that allowed them to aid in crossing obstacles. The vehicle was assigned to cavalry and reconnaissance elements of armored and motorized divisions.

The AB 41 was, apart from appearance, a modification and improvement on the AB 40. The largest change was the increase in firepower. Produced in greater numbers than it's sisters AB 40 and AB 43, this car became the most important Armored Car in the Italian inventory. After the Italian surrender, RSI elements used this vehicle until final peace, when police units took control of the remaining numbers. This 1:43 scale vehicle saw service in North Africa, Italy, Hungary, and the USSR. Sold Out!
