WWII British Armoured Car
(Pattern 1920 Mk.I)
The British Armoured Car Pattern 1920 Mk.I was one of the first attempts in the history of 20th Century warfare to combine the construction of the car with armament, making it well-protected against an opponent's firearms. In the construction of this car the chassis of the Silver Ghost was used as a basis. A new armored superstructure was set on top of it, with a rotating turret fitted with a variety of different weapons.
During WWI this car found wide application at the fronts in the African colonies and the Middle East, where long and exhausting battles to rearrange the map of the world were taking place. After the end of the war these armored cars executed, not for the first time, the functions of police constabulary, and keeping peace among mutinous tribes. Some moderization allowed them to carry on past the beginning of WWII and take part in its first stage, again mainly in the colonies of the British Empire.
