This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The model 42 Desert Vehicle was developed for the Italian Army based on the chassis and mechanics of the AB 41 armoured car. The engineers eliminated the dual running direction typical of the AB 41 and the four-wheel drive. The vehicle was produced in two armament configurations: one with 20 mm cannon/machine gun and the other with 47/32 anti-tank cannon. Several dozen of these vehicles were produced; after the fall of the African front, the remaining ABMs were re-deployed in Italy, ending their career in the police force in the 1950s.
