32411 French Armoured Car AMD3532411
In 1934 the French military military adopted the AMD35, a 4-wheel drive light reconnaissance vehicle (Auto Mitrailleuse de Découverte - AMD) design. This highly mobile armored car was powered by a 105hp engine that allowed a top speed of 72km/h, while armament was taken care of by a 25mm anti-tank gun. Feedback from units deploying the AMD35 led to incremental improvements such as a periscope, commander\'s hatch ventilator and muffler. In May 1940 when German forces invaded France, 360 AMD35s were in the field and performing valuable reconnaissance. Their performance and design was impressive enough that some captured vehicles were even turned on the Allies by German troops.
