Italian armored car Autoblinda Ab-41. Watercolor. This one was funny to paint, because the background took me more time to draw and color than the vehicle itself 😅
The use of armored cars was since the World War I, and after some decades, during the Second Great War, these vehicles were improved. In this type of machines, the most famous of the Italian Army was the Autoblinda Ab. Conceived for patrol and recon tasks, the first model, the Ab-40 had all his structure in bolted steel plates and armed with various machineguns. One very particular thing was the inclusion of a second driver on the rear for reverse maneuvers for a quick escape. The model Ab-41, the only differences with his predecessor was his Breda's 20mm cannon and he had more weight. The Ab-41's had a good role in North Africa, the Balkans and even for the deffense of the Saló Republic.
