Here is the latest addition to the Freikorps motor pool. It is a Garford-Putilov armored car. These were originally made in Russia during WW1 but captured ones were pressed into service by the Freikorps after the war. The armament is interesting with a turret mounted 75mm mounted on the rear and three MMG elsewhere. The vehicle was notoriously underpowered and had a top speed of 10mph. The model is by Copplestone Miniatures and is made for use with 28mm minis.

  1. I wonder why the 75 was in that sheath-like thing? Still I have this fascination with those old-time armoured cars. Such beasties!
