SPA AB 41 resp. PzSpWg Fiat/SPA Typ AB 41






In 1939, the first modern armoured car was introduced in Italy. It was the SPA AB 40. It had 4x4 drive, four-wheel steering and drivers in the front and rear. The SPA AB 41 was introduced in 1941. The armament was strengthened with a 2 cm machine gun. This SPA AB 41 was most probably photographed during a combined Italian - German action in the Balkans.









Several dozens of these vehicles were taken over by the Wehrmacht after the Italian capitulation under the designation Panzerspähwagen Fiat/SPA Typ AB 41 like this AB 41 of an unknown German unit. (Photo: German federal archive via Wikimedia Commons; License: Creative Commons BY-SA-3.0-gb)
