Looks like a cross between a BA10 and a Dutch armoured car

Already targeted ;)

Not that different to Russian BA-3's & 6's, although entirely Spanish made. They were built on chassis of the Chevrolet 1937 truck produced in Barcelona under US license.

There's some funny story about them, BTW. A good number of them crossed north the Pyrenees at the end of Catalonia campaign, fleeing from Spanish Nationalists.


There, they were requisitioned and incorporated into the French Army --with the expectable results you can easily imagine after the Fall of France, one year later:


Some of them, if not all, were sent to the Eastern Front. Can you guess the expression on these Russian soldiers face after meeting one such AFVs?


Not that strange. Such is the perennial story of exilÚs everywhere.

Lluis, you'd BETTER make this one in 1/72 scale! I want a pair for my Groupe Franc mobile column, just for starters…evil grin
