Autoblinda Ab41: Italeri/ Testors
Autoblinda Ab41 : 1:35 Scale
The AB 40 was an advanced armored car in its day. First revealed at a Fiat plant in 1939, this vehicle featured four-wheel drive and two spare wheels mounted in such a way that it was nearly impossible to high-center the AB 40 on an obstacle.
The AB 41 was introduced in 1941 which incorporated a number of engineering improvements. It still retained the 20mm main gun and turret of the AB 40. The AB 41 could reach 70 kph on roadways and up to 40 kph off-road.
The problem with the AB 41 was inadequate armor and an overly complex four-wheel steering system. After approximately 450 AB 41s were produced, the type was replaced by the improved AB 43.
In addition to service within the Italian Army, the AB 41 also served in the Wehrmacht as the Pz.Sp.Wg. AB 41 201 (i), primarily within Italy in 1944.
