These armoured cars were manufactured by Fiat in 1940/1941 years, their name came from the year of manufacture: AB40 , AB41 y AB43. After Italian surrender in September 1943, German modify some of the AB41, improving motors, exhausts and some other features, building the AB43 version, which is depicted by Altaya.

Cammo pattern is the same showed by a conserved model, as you can see at Italian wikipedia.
Although vehicle has two driver positions for both directions, i made a mistake on the pictures, as the common one is the reverse to the one showed.

This is the only model available in Diecast for this vehicles, they can be found on injected plastic models by Italeri and also the AB41 version, used by Germans as AB41 201(i).

Altaya’s model has no major faults, a good quality for a price which must not overpass 10€.
